How the Coalition Works

CfAS Board of Directors
A Board of Directors oversees the work of CfAS. Coalition Partners propose individuals to serve on the Board of Directors, and vote on proposed candidates to the Board. The CfAS Board of Directors:

·       Selects the Review Committee for proposals
·       Makes final decisions on the funded proposals based on Review Committee recommendations
·       Oversees the activities of the NCAS
·       Aids in fund raising for CfAS programs and operations
·       Establishes a nominating committee for Board membership

Review Committee
The CfAS Review Committee reviews grant proposals, and:
·       Makes recommendations for funding
·       May make recommendations for changes to working group composition
The Review Committee is made up of 4 to 6 members, with staggered 2-year terms.
