Join a Tri-County Alliance committee today!

Why committees are essential:

Committees are the operating system of an association. Committees involve members in the development and delivery of services, represent member opinion in decision-making, and help serve member needs through interaction. They also offer the opportunity for group problem-solving and can be a forum for presenting multiple points of view. Tri-County Alliance’s committees also offer an opportunity to be part of action groups within your community, with a heavy focus on serving and working with the local community organizations in our service areas. Committees are also the training ground for future leadership, at the local, state, and national levels; and an arena where emerging leaders can test and refine their skills and abilities. For these reasons, committee effectiveness is critical to association operations.
