Most committees meet for one hour – every other month. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please find a staff member, board member, or committee chair and find out about opportunities to be engaged in the work of NACG!
We would be honored to have you join a committee as together we can strengthen the work we do!
The Development Committee assists the organization in exploring both fundraising and friend-raising in development opportunities and fundraising activities. The committee meets every other month for one hour.
The Education Committee works to bring the very best educational opportunities to the NACG membership. The committee is invited to make recommendations regarding education opportunities and needs related to the field of childhood bereavement. The committee meets every other month for one hour.
The Membership Committee acts to grow the NACG Alliance by expanding individual/organizational enrollment, membership benefits, and development of initiatives that engage members in awareness of NACG resources and mission. Committee members serve as a resource in support of the NACG Symposium, community outreach and awareness campaigns. The committee meets every other month for one hour.
Workgroups provide a wonderful opportunity to share their expertise and experience in our field. An array of topics are explored so there is an opportunity to engage in a variety of subject areas.
- Workgroups are time-limited, which is an easier commitment for many.
- Workgroups have a specific purpose with an output. Workgroups allow members to see a project from beginning to end.
- Workgroups provide an opportunity to contribute to a product and reflect a sense of accomplishment. Contributors are cited in the resources that are developed.
- Workgroups need specific representation in skills, knowledge base, field representation, and diversity. The workgroup format allows for the rotation of members to share their expertise and representation.
Upcoming workgroups include:
- Literature Review (Resources for professionals)
- Literature Review (Resources for children and teens)
- Children’s Grief Awareness Month
- Zoe Project
- Standards of Practice Review
