PART I: SECTION PURPOSES AND FUNCTIONS
Because of geographic distances, costs, and vagaries of voluntary commitment, the functions of the Section Council are often carried out in an informal and pragmatic way. Tasks may be delegated to officers and committees which may function rather autonomously. They must, however, keep the Chair informed of all actions, decisions, and plans. Section Council members have the responsibility to participate and be available to provide guidance and support to any activity when requested. At its meetings, the Section Council develops, coordinates, revises, ratifies, and endorses activities that are carried out by the Section Council Members.
