WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEMBERSHIP ON THE MAIN COMMITTEE AND SUBCOMMITTEE?
Members on the Main Committee are members of the consensus body, and they must adhere to the requirements set up by the ASC A92 Policies and Procedures as well as the ANSI Essential Requirements. Members of the Main Committee are represented on the organizational level.
Members on each subcommittee are represented as individuals. Each subcommittee is formed to expedite the work of the consensus body as outlined in its scope and duties. Some of these responsibilities include drafting all or portions of a standard, drafting responses for comments, and other advisory functions.
Membership on the Main Committee and a subcommittee are not interdependent. An interested company and individual must apply for each committee separately and will be voted on individually.
HOW DO I APPLY TO BE A MEMBER OF THE MAIN COMMITTEE OR SUBCOMMITTEE?
If you are interested in becoming a member, you will need to fill out an ASC A92 Membership Application online. Completed applications should be submitted to the A92 Secretariat no later than 30-days prior to the ASC A92 Annual Meeting.
HOW AM I SELECTED AND APPROVED?
If you apply to a subcommittee, the subcommittee chair passes your application along with a recommendation to the Main Committee chair, who checks that the interest classification remains in balance. Your name and brief description of your affiliation and interest is then passed on to the Main Committee. The Main Committee votes on all applications during the ASC A92 Annual Meeting. If you apply for the Main Committee, the process is similar except that the application is directed to the Main Committee.
WHAT ARE MY RESPONSIBILITIES AS A SUBCOMMITTEE MEMBER?
You will be expected to attend meetings; contribute your ideas and feedback; occasionally accept assignments, such as drafting language for a particular section; and vote on changes to the standard.
