Adding a Member to a Committee

This article is also available via a 1 min video which provides more details on the process:

You can add members to committees via Member Maintenance or Committee Maintenance.

Tip:  If you are adding a significant number of students, teachers and/or aides the quickest way to add them is via Committee Maintenance. You avoid having to search for each individual member.

Adding a Member to a Committee via Member Maintenance

1.  Scroll to Families > Member Search ( Using Family and Member Search

2.  On the Member Maintenance form, click on the Committees tab

3.  Click on New Committee and up a pop-up screen will appear.  Select the Committee that you wish to add the member to from the drop-down box.   If the Committee you are looking for is not in the drop-down please click on this link ( Adding a New Committee ).

4.   Committee Position is used to define the position within the committee.  For example, Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Member to name a few.

Note:  A parish/diocese can setup a Committee Attribute type Position.  If these positions are added as an attribute then when you add a member to a committee this list of positions will show in the drop-down menu as shown in the screenshot below.  This will allow for consistent entries of positions across all committees.  For example, Vice President can be added as VP or V-President or Vice President.  To prevent multiple position names from occurring we suggest you add your positions by selecting Add Position under the Attributes Tab.  For additional information on adding Committee Attributes please click on this link Committee Maintenance Attributes

5.   Start Date and End Date is used to indicate a members term on a committee.  

Note:  Gabriel will be setting up an automatic job to remove the members when their term expires. Please contact Customer Support to inquire about the release of this feature.

6.   Year - Use to define the year the member joins the committee.  This will help to track how long a parishioner has been on a committee.
