Roles of Subcommittee Co-Chairs
Subcommittee Co-Chairs are critical to ensuring that the process is well coordinated. To that end, Subcommittee Co-Chairs are expected to:
• Recruit subcommittee participants: Subcommittee Co-Chairs are experts in their fields with networks beyond traditional stakeholders. Please encourage people in your network to sign up here to join the CAEECC electronic mailing lists. Check here for up-to-date lists of subcommittee participants.
• Collect feedback and relay to the Facilitator: Subcommittee Co-Chairs are responsible for collecting feedback from participating stakeholders. This information can be relayed to the Facilitator by forwarding meeting notes and other input and documents received from stakeholders. Subcommittee Co-Chairs are responsible for ensuring notes are taken during Subcommittee meetings. The Facilitator and Coordinating Committee Co-Chairs will relay information provided by the Subcommittee Co-Chairs to the PAs and publish it on this website.
• Leverage existing working groups: Subcommittee Co-Chairs should also ensure pertinent existing working groups are tapped into the right meetings (e.g., Residential and the Home Upgrade Working Group, Emerging Technologies and the Emerging Technologies Coordinating Council, HVAC matters should connect with the Western HVAC Performance Alliance, etc.).
• Coordinate similar topics that cross different subcommittees: There are a variety of topics that get raised in different subcommittees (e.g., codes and standards efforts are relevant to both the Public Sector and Codes & Standards Subcommittees, schools are relevant to both the Public and Commercial Sectors, etc.). Subcommittee Co-Chairs are responsible for communicating with other Co-Chairs to ensure there is coordination during this process.
