Adult Education Committee Charter

Adult Education Committee Charter

Mission Statement
The AEC will organize adult educational activities that promote greater knowledge of Judaism, help build our Jewish community and explore Jewish culture as well as organize workshops and classes on other topics of interest to the Beit Am community. 

Responsibilities
The Adult Education Committee [AEC] is a standing Beit Am committee responsible for organizing and publicizing educational activities intended for adults. These events are held under the auspices of Beit Am but not necessarily at the Beit Am building. Activities can range from single events to multi-session classes. Membership in Beit Am is not a requirement to attend Adult Education events except in specific instances as deemed by the AEC. 

Expenditure of Funds
The Adult Education Committee may expend funds for programming as allocated by the Board in its annual budget. The Committee may solicit in advance additional funds from the Board as required for programming. Should programming require additional tuition or donations, the committee shall be responsible for the collection and administration of such revenues as well as the disbursement of any honoraria or expenses associated with programming. 

Membership 
The Adult Education Committee is composed of five to six current Beit Am members including a committee chair selected by the Beit Am Board President. Members may include the Rabbi and the Board member who holds the portfolio for Adult Education and Activities. When there is an opening on the AEC, the chair will solicit a replacement in consultation with the other members of the committee. The committee chair will give updates on the AEC as requested by the Board. 

Meetings 
The Adult Education Committee will meet periodically throughout the year as required to plan events and activities. Minutes will be taken at meetings.
