Much of the work that ASCIT accomplishes is completed between meetings by its committees. ASCIT members who would like to join one or more of these committees should reach out to the ASCIT chair unless otherwise specified.
The committees are as follows.
Education and Outreach Committee
The purpose of the Education and Outreach Committee is to provide accessible technology outreach and educational opportunities. This committee identifies training (e.g. local school wants accessibility training), presentation, and conference opportunities. It connects ASCIT members who would be the best presenters for those trainings, presentations, and opportunities. It also works to keep informed of trends in order to create training/presentation topics based on best practices. We also bring together ASCIT members in volunteering for these outreach events, including creating the presentations and monitoring the process for specific due dates (like for conferences and events). Finally, the Education and Outreach Committee reports on the successes of those events to ASCIT and helps organize the resources to post on our website.
The purpose of this committee is to continuously improve ASCIT's internal and external communications through the development and/or maintenance of ASCIT's brand, website, social media accounts, documents, and other communication tools. This committee is also largely responsible for externally sharing content about events, resources, and tools related to Information Communication Technology (ICT) accessibility.
The purpose of this committee is to coordinate with the Secretary, Chair, and members to maintain membership engagement. This committee is largely responsible for maintaining membership contact information, identifying membership skills, managing a talent repository, recruitment, providing insight on membership retention, soliciting input and feedback on the needs and expectations of members and welcoming new members.
