Volunteers are key to the technical excellence of the work undertaken by TAC. As in many associations, work is organized around a series of volunteer councils and standing committees.
Membership of the standing committees is generally open to TAC members, although there may be limits to ensure geographic regions and sectors are not over-represented. Contact the TAC Secretariat to express your interest.
Of a Project Steering Committee
The process usually begins by raising the subject you are interested in with a standing committee. A standing committee can recommend either a volunteer or a funded project to a council, in which case the Secretariat will seek funding partners for the work. A project proposal form, which identifies some of the information usually needed to initiate a project, is available on the TAC website. Please refer to http://www.tac-atc.ca/en/projects/operating-information. Feel free to contact the Secretariat with questions at any time.
Project descriptions and status information is available on TAC’s website at http://www.tac-atc.ca/en/projects.
Most TAC projects begin with a request for letters of interest or proposals. Such requests are emailed to the official member representatives of TAC’s private sector and academic members, and are also posted on-line at http://www.tac-atc.ca/en/projects/current-rfps
TAC has conflict of interest guidelines that are intended to be used as a code of practice for members participating in TAC meetings. The guidelines can be found at http://www.tac-atc.ca/en/councils-and-committees/operating-information.
