Committees are teams of member volunteers that work together to keep the inner machinery of the society running. Each committee has a chair or co-chairs that are responsible for scheduling meetings and managing workflow. Committee positions primarily operate on a "give what you can, when you can" basis, though we recommend having a minimum of, on average, a few hours a week available to dedicate to supporting projects as needed, with the caveat that certain time periods will be busier than others depending on external deadlines.
