WisRID Committees function as the hands of the organization and to do the business of WisRID, providing programs and services for its members and implementing policies set by the WisRID Board.

WisRID Committees should follow the best practices that are established by the WisRID Board. All committee business is conducted in accordance with WisRID Bylaws.

WisRID Committees are vital to the success of the organization. Each committee serves its own purpose and is made up of WisRID members in good standing. Committee participation is on a volunteer basis and involvement is not compensated. However, some committees may offer discounted and/or waived fees for workshops, etc. as an incentive for participation.

All committee members and chairs serve from January 1st– December 31st.

In addition, some specific issues can be assigned to a task force. Upon its conclusion, it makes a report and recommendation to the WisRID Board and it is dissolved.
