Volunteer Committees

Shape the future of CAAA! Join one of our committees and become an integral. The Board of Directors conducts all business by and through the committee process and collectively evaluates and approves all actions undertaken by committees. The Association is driven by the work completed by committees composed of Directors and other volunteers, and it is the work of the committees that guides the direction of the Association. 

Committees include:

The Finance Committee examines the annual budget submitted by CAAA staff, recommends appropriate modifications, and submits the budget to the Board of Directors for approval. The Committee assesses quarterly financial statements and other financial or budget reports and makes appropriate mid-year adjustments to ensure that the Association’s finances are consistent with the budget. Special funding requests or other issues that will substantially impact the financial position of the Association are analyzed by the Finance Committee prior to submission to the Board of Directors. The Finance Committee also monitors the investments CAAA holds, advising the Board of any changes to the portfolio if financial goals and objectives are not being met with the current investment mix.

The Audit and Governance Committee shall develop and propose bylaws, including amendments, and manage the Association’s Policy and Procedures. The Committee shall oversee the quality and integrity of the Association’s financial statements, ensuring institutional compliance with mandatory auditing standards, and evaluating institutional systems of risk assessment and internal controls. The Committee shall make recommendations to the Board of Directors with respect to the Association’s independent auditor

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee shall create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization and foster a sense of belonging and welcomeness for all CAAA alumni, parents, families, and friends.

The Alumni Engagement Committee shall use programs and services, including innovative and effective processes, to activate and engage alumni and the UC Davis community.
