Expectations of Committee Volunteers
NADCA relies on participation and input from committee volunteers, who serve for one‐year appointments. Committee volunteers provide invaluable insight into the HVAC inspection, maintenance and restoration industry and, combined with the efforts of staff, produce the high quality member benefits for which NADCA is recognized.
If you have never served on a committee, you may be wondering what would be expected of you. More than 85 industry professionals played an active role in leading NADCA as committee volunteers. Some members were very involved at a “hands‐on” level, while others served in more of an advisory capacity, offering ideas and helping to define and evaluate proposed programs. As an HVAC cleaning professional, you have the in‐depth understanding of the industry required to help direct NADCA’s initiatives. You can help answer the questions, “Which initiatives should NADCA undertake, and what should these programs encompass?” Diverse member feedback enables NADCA to represent a broad range of interests throughout the industry.
Most committees meet via conference call a few times per year. Conference calls typically last no more than one hour. Committee volunteers are asked to participate in these calls whenever possible. Some volunteers may take on special assignments at the request of a committee chair.
