Chapter Organization

The Artemis Society of Dallas is divided into committees.  Each committee is responsible for a specific area of the opertions of the chapter.  For example, the ASD Financial Committee is responsible for overseeing all financial actions taken by the chapter.  Each committee creates subcommittees or project teams as necessary to oversee the individual operations of the committee.

The only requirement for joining a committee is a desire to do so and a currently active membership in the Artemis Society of Dallas.

Each subcommittee is responsible for some overall facet of a committee's operation.  For example, the ASD Fund Raising Subcommittee is responsible for managing all of the fund raising operations undertaken by the ASD Financial Committee.  Every member of a subcommittee must also be a member of the parent committee.  There are no other requirements for subcommittee membership.

Committees and subcommittees elect their own officers by majority vote of the committee members present.  Committee and subcommittee officers consist of: Certain committees and subcommittees may have additional requirements or restrictions regarding who may be officers of the committee or subcommittee.  For example, the Treasurer of the ASD is automatically the Chairman of the ASD Financial Committee.

Committees and subcommittees hold committee meetings separate from the normal meetings of ASD.  The committee chairmen are required to submit a committee report at each regularly scheduled meeting of the ASD.  Similarly, subcommittee chairmen are required to submit a subcommittee report at each regularly scheduled meeting of their parent committee.  In both cases the report shall contain a financial statement accounting for the use of funds (if any) allocated to the committee.

Committees and subcommittees alike form project teams to administer individual projects for the committee.  For example, if the ASD Fund Raising Subcommittee decided to hold a bake sale to raise funds for the chapter, a project team would be formed to oversee the bake sale and would be disbanded once this project was complete.

The only officer on the project team is the team leader.  He or she is elected by majority vote of the parent committee or subcommittee members present during his/her appointment.  The team leader must be a member of the project team's parent committee or subcommittee.  However, there is no requirement that team members must be members of the appropriate committee or subcommittee.  This allows project teams to recruit labor from the membership at large.

Each team leader must submit a project report at each regularly scheduled meeting of the team's parent committee or subcommittee.  This report shall contain a financial statement accounting for the use of funds (if any) allocated to the project team.
