Operations Committees carry out Board-mandated operations, duties, and policies, as well as many of the necessary business and organizational functions of NCSS. Operations committees relate their work to Board directives, the long-range plan of NCSS, and the leadership theme of the year set by the Board. They make recommendations to the board and provide advice.
You must be a member of NCSS to serve on a committee, serving on one committee at any time. NCSS will raise the voices of all social studies professionals in an organization whose culture is inclusive and where all voices are encouraged, supported and celebrated. In all policies and activities, every effort will be made to achieve this goal. Additionally, as the NCSS mission statement affirms our commitment to engaging and supporting educators as they strengthen and advocate social studies, every effort will be made to ensure that the overall composition and leadership of NCSS committees and task forces reflect the proportion of their membership in NCSS.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Appointments are made by the House of Delegates in during the Annual Conference and by the NCSS President-Elect in June for terms that begin the following July 1.
