New Committees Forming – Volunteers Needed

We are forming three new committees that need members. Details for each committee can be found below.

Hardship Fund Committee

  • What this committee will do: 
    • LCCEF received funds from AFT-Oregon to begin a hardship fund for our members who may need financial assistance during the pandemic. This committee will develop the criteria for grant requests and make recommendations to the Executive Council for continued funding. The EC would like the committee to explore ways to sustain the fund to continue to help members through future temporary hardships.
  • Number of volunteers needed:
    • A minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 volunteers needed. 
  • Availability/Commitment level required:
    • This is a permanent committee that would meet regularly for one-hour meetings. Meeting frequency will be discussed by the committee and would depend on the committee’s ability to respond to requests between meetings.
  • Other info:
    • This is a brand new opportunity to mold and shape how this fund is developed and made available to members.

Stipend Committee

    • Examine current Executive Council Officer Stipends and determine if the current method should continue.
