The Executive Committee is the elected governance body of NASCA and is responsible for directing, through executive management, the general business of the Association. The committee meets on the third Thursday of each month at 1:00 pm Eastern Time.
The Program Committee plans value-add content for both state and corporate association members. Examples of this includes:
• Quarterly Webinars or Conference Calls on Relevant Topics. Although context is delivered by public sector leadership, corporate members are welcome to help plan and listen to the calls.
• Quarterly Corporate Member Roundtable Conference Calls. This call provides corporate members with an update from the NASCA Executive Committee President and features a State Chief Administrator as the guest speaker. The guest speaker typically discusses projects they are working on in their state.
• New Programming – Regional, Topical, or Orientation Conferences. The Program Committee can also pilot new conferences or events.
The Institute Committee is charged with developing relevant and actionable programming, in partnership with LNW at Harvard University, that is in line with members’ priorities, in an innovative manner for the association’s annual event, the Institute on Management and Leadership. The committee meets monthly. They also help coordinate with AMR and the host state regarding logistics for the Institute.
