Committee Members support the vision, mission and guiding principles of the Houston Ryan White Planning Council (RWPC) and will demonstrate energy, vitality, and a positive attitude towards Planning Council work goals. Committee members are essential to the functioning of the Planning Council.
Committee Members must be committed to and interested in the Committee’s charge. Experience, skills and expertise in the Committee’s work product will be achieved collectively through Committee Membership.
Committee Members must understand and support the RWPC Conflict of Interest Policy and Procedure and will take personal responsibility to minimize the effect, whether real or perceived, of Conflict of Interest at the Council and Committee levels.
Committee Members must be willing to follow through on their delegated tasks and support other members in completing their tasks. Members must take personal responsibility to fulfill their duties to the Council and their assigned committee.
Committee Members must show active interest and participation in Committee development, mentoring new members and assisting them in preparing for possible Planning Council membership.
Committee Members will conduct themselves professionally and be courteous and show respect to other members, staff, and the community regardless of differing outlooks, opinions, or views. Committee Members will appreciate and respect differing styles of communication and expression.
Committee Members will commit six to eight hours monthly to the Houston EMA Planning Council; approximately two hours monthly in Planning Council meetings; two to three hours monthly in Committee meetings; and two to three hours monthly to participate in assigned workgroups and to complete assigned tasks. Any Council member with four (4) absences from Council or committee meetings within a calendar year or who fails to perform the duties of a Council member described herein without just cause, is subject to removal by the Chief Elected Official (the Harris County Judge).
