Responsibility for ARJE’s continuing operations is shared by a close partnership between the organization’s staff and a dedicated corps of volunteer leadership. On the volunteer side, the “Operations” is overseen by two Operations Coordinators and two Membership Involvement Coordinators. They coordinate the activities of five teams, each of which is made up of various committees tasked with managing particular aspects of the organization’s work: Advocacy, Communications, Finance, Membership, and Professional Learning.
