Annually, FACT distributes a Call for Volunteers to solicit new committee members for its Standing and Special Committees.
The FACT Board of Director strives to have a 20% turnover each year in committee membership to provide new opportunities for those interested in becoming more involved with FACT as well as to interject fresh and innovative perspectives in working groups.
It is always moving to see the numbers of volunteers willing to devote their personal time in light of increasingly busy schedules. Although there are typically not enough positions available to place all volunteers on a committee, we retain the information of volunteers to appoint to committees in subsequent years.
