ADVISORY COMMITTEE CHAIRS (ACC's)

 

The Booster Club establishes Advisory Committees, lead by an Advisory Committee Chair (ACC) for any club/sport/activity at Issaquah High School that does fundraising or collects funds for a specific club/sport/activity.  

The Advisory Committee structure was introduced to the Booster Club framework in May 2017.  During the Fall of 2016, the Booster Club engaged Perkins Coie, on a pro bono basis, to provide advice regarding corporate governance matters.  As part of that review, Perkins Coie recommended that Boosters strengthen the Board’s internal controls with respect to club and sport-specific fundraising efforts. They also recommended a complete revision of the Bylaws to cleanly reflect current standards and the numerous Amendments since the Booster Club was established in 1995. 

 

In consultation with legal counsel, the Board established new Advisory Committees to support specific teams, along with guidelines and expectations for those committees.  With the Issaquah High School, Athletic Director's support, the Booster Club is now positioned to provide an official framework to support club and sport-specific fundraising efforts. 

 

 


 

 

Advisory Committee members and chairs are appointed by the Board.  Approved Advisory Committees are then permitted to engage in Booster-related fundraising efforts on behalf of its sport/club/activity.  Funds raised by Advisory Committees will be earmarked as “restricted funds” and held by the Booster Club for the benefit of the team.  

Advisory Committees also advise the program's coach/advisor about other Booster-related benefits, such as grants, scholarships, and awards.  

Each Advisory Committee will be established for an annual term, with the start and end date determined by the Board.  Advisory Committee Chairs and Committee are reviewed annually and may be removed at any time for not meeting the criteria.

Guidelines have been put in place to set clear expectations for Advisory Committees while providing each committee flexibility to meet the needs of its specific sport/club/activity.
