CAPPA Business Partner Liaison Committee

Charge/Expectations/Responsibilities for Committee Members

January 2012

CHARGE

The charge is to provide program development feedback, recommendations, support and other input to the Professional Development Committee Chair, the President, and the Vice Presidents to support quality Business Partner participation in the Technology Conference, the Annual Meeting, and all other appropriate association activities in which Business Partners are involved.

EXPECTATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF COMMITTEE MEMBERS

Committee Members

The President is the chair of this Committee and responsible for ensuring the Committee charge is executed.  The Committee members include the Immediate Past President, all Vice Presidents, the Treasurer, the Chair of the Professional Development Committee, the Event Planner, and appointed Business Partners. 

Commitment

Members are expected to enhance the environment fostering positive corporate and higher education relationships that will allow for effective and efficient facilities management opportunities at higher education institutions. 

Each individual should begin/continue their role with a passion for the work of their chosen committee and provide support for the chairperson and other committee members alike.  As with other CAPPA committees, there is the expectation of full participation, to the extent possible, in all committee meetings (generally two times per year and periodic conference calls.)  Implicit in this expectation is the understanding that members’ institutions will support their attendance at CAPPA’s Annual Conference and the CAPPA Technology  Conference where the committee holds regularly scheduled meetings prior to an official opening of each conference (at the committee member institution’s partial expense).  These meetings are usually held in Sep/Oct and Feb.  If for some reason the committee member is unable to attend this meeting, a substitute may be selected in consultation with the Committee Chair to attend to ensure a balance of representation and continued flow of information to the committee and the regional board.
