Volunteer Committee Interest

Awards

The Competition Council is currently evaluating the future structure of the NACE awards program. We are looking for volunteers interested in providing feedback, as well as potentially serving on a committee that will help select award winners for 2023-2024. A few short meetings, taking place every week or two, would be necessary in the early fall to start providing feedback. If selected for an awards selection committee, the time commitment would mostly be in the spring, but the full scope of this group's responsibility is still to be determined.

Convention Planning

The convention planning committee assists the national office staff by providing input and helping make key decisions about programming and other aspects of the national convention every summer. The various sub-groups of this committee meet once a month throughout the year, with an increased cadence in the months leading up to the convention.

Seeding Committees

The seeding committees work with the Competition Council to determine the playoff seed of teams in a given game title. They meet a few times over the course of the semester with the first meeting beginning in October or March for fall and spring respectively. Communication and engagement would ramp up towards the end of the season to ensure seeding is completed before playoffs.
