Committees and Task Forces

Get Involved

Each year Worldwide ERC®'s Executive Committee appoints members to committees and task forces needed to guide and plan the activities of Worldwide ERC®. In addition, The Worldwide ERC® Foundation’s Nominating Committee nominates members for election to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. 

(Worldwide ERC®'s committee selection process takes place at the end of each year usually in November/December. Since we often have more requests to serve on committees than we have spots, we’re not always able to accommodate specific requests for committee participation immediately, but please know that Worldwide ERC® is committed to involving as many members as possible in the Council's activities!)
