Unexcused absences

We are committed to being as efficient as possible and to do so we must operate according to our bylaws. Please make it a priority to notify us if you will not be able to attend your committee meetings. In general, the bylaws* allow that a member with two unexcused absences may be removed from a committee. We ask that you contact Kim Smith or call your staff liaison at (800) 555-3390 to let them know that you will not be attending a committee meeting or the Board of Directors meeting. *Some committees have different requirements.

Materials for the Fall Business Meetings are in PAR’s folder online in Box. Committee agendas, speakers and topics, and a finalized schedule with meeting room assignments can be found in the Box.com folder on Friday, Sept. 1.
