ANC 1A Ad-Hoc and Standing Committees: 2017-2018

These committees are made up of neighborhood residents, report to ANC 1A, and are expected to coordinate closely with all commissioners on issues in their Single Member Districts. The term for the Chair and Co-Chair of a committee is one year, but the number of times one may be reelected is not limited. The Chair and Co-Chair are voted on by the ANC 1A Commissioners. The Committee is expected to promote membership and maintain a list of its members. Except for the Executive Committee (created in the Bylaws) and the Committee of the Whole, Membership and Chair positions are open to all ANC 1A residents.
