The committee is composed of medical professionals, a coach, an official, a ASAA board member and a school administrator. A staff member serves as liaison to the committee. The committee through the chair has the authority to contact other qualified medical providers throughout the state as consultants from time-to-time as appropriate. The chairman of the committee will be the ASAA board member.
Communication to and from the board and committee will be conducted through the executive director who serves as committee liaison. Communications between committee members can be accomplished in the manner most convenient to the members. ASAA is willing to develop email accounts for committee members if requested. The committee chair is invited to address the board on any relevant matters during regular board meetings.
ASAA will fund two face-to-face committee meetings each year, and conference calls as may be needed to conduct the committee’s business. ASAA will also provide other incidental services as the committee may request.
Committee Power Structure
The committee is not empowered to take independent action or to make pronouncements. These may only come from the board after considering the committee’s recommendations. Committee members will be asked to sign a legal acknowledgement which includes a statement that members can list their services to ASAA in their professional resumes, but are not to use their committee position in advertising or promotional materials. This will be included in a conflict of interest document that committee members must sign.
Indemnification for Committee Members
Committee members will be indemnified under ASAA’s Errors and Omission insurance policy while serving in their official capacities on the committee.
