Action Committee
Committee Chair - Past-President "Those concerns targeted by the Board for further action will be researched by the committee to fully define the concern and policy alternatives. The committee may survey the membership to identify national, state, or local groundwater policies of concern to the members of the Association. The committee may compile and present the results of membership surveys to the Board as necessary. A review paper outlining each targeted concern, and alternative action to remedy such concerns, may be published in the newsletter and may be circulated to legislative bodies, regulatory agencies, and organizations or individuals selected by the Board. The membership may be surveyed regarding its preference among alternative actions outlined in the review paper. Survey results will be presented to the Board for consideration of further action. The committee may prepare a position paper and carry out actions as directed by the Board (draft legislation, propose regulations, etc.) to encourage and support policy changes supported by the Association. The committee shall conduct surveys, organize telephone and letter-writing campaigns, or conduct other activities authorized by the Board in support of the policy positions taken by the Association."
