Committees

One of the most valuable benefits of CJE is taking an active part in a committee with your industry peers. If you are interested in volunteering, please log into your member profile and select the committee in which you want to participate or contact Gloria Fuller at gloria@jocexcellence.org for assistance.


CJE members can volunteer to serve on working committees to contribute to the industry.  The following Standing Committees are composed of members from each regional chapter:
  • Education Committee – The committee meets via conference call, contributes to the Research Library, coordinates white papers, assists in the development of special topic workshops for the chapters, and organizes national webinars.  The Education Committee includes representatives from each regional chapter in addition to volunteers.  Chapters must obtain approval for education events from the Education Committee and the Board of Directors. A Committee Chair serves as the facilitator and organizer.
  • Election & Nomination Committee – Past Industry Chair and Secretary serve as Elections Chairs with an officer from each chapter volunteering to assist the efforts. Each chapter will designate either their Chapter Past President or Chapter Secretary to serve on the Election and Nomination Committee.  The committee shall meet via conference call bi-annually and with greater frequency as needed during the election processes that occurs during the fourth quarter annually.
  • Legislative Affairs Committee – each chapter designates a chapter officer representative on this committee as a national effort to track and maintain awareness of legislative changes that affect the industry.  Members of the association may volunteer to serve on the committee to contribute to the organization’s legislative knowledge. A Committee Chair serves as the facilitator and organizer.
  • Membership & Marketing Committee – each Chapter has a designated Chapter Membership Liaison that serves on the membership committee. Additional volunteers serve to contribute to chapter growth.  The committee ensures consistency in member services across all chapters and leads the annual membership drive.

Ad Hoc Committees are developed on occasion based on issues and serve as temporary committees.
