Steering Committee graphic

We're on the look out for new steering committee members who can provide strategic support and advice to the Existence Project's work.

Specific skills in marketing, curriculum development, strategic planning or fundraising would be a great asset.

The Steering Committee is a voluntary advisory group to both the Existence Project and MakeWay Senior Management Team.

Although the Steering Committee has no legal or governing authority, it plays an important role in ensuring Project accountability. It also contributes to the Project's health and success by sharing its experience, leadership, and technical expertise.

The Steering Committee's responsibilities include:

  • Defining Project purposes, goals, and objectives.
  • Strategic planning, including developing budgets and work plans.
  • Developing resources to ensure that expenditures are met.
  • Evaluating success in achieving deliverables on all contracts.
  • Recruiting, selecting, and supervising the Project Director, including conducting performance evaluations of the Project Director in accordance with MakeWay’s human resources policies.
  • Advising the Project Specialist of any concerns, irregularities, etc. in the Project's activities.

The Steering Committee may:

  • Appoint one member as its chair.
  • Delegate portions of the first four responsibilities listed above to the Project Director.
  • Members of the Steering Committee should be familiar with MakeWay’s mission, as well as MakeWay's policies and procedures. Some training is provided.
