Committees are chaired by SARAH Board members to solicit input from the membership on policy and planning decisions. The Membership Council will vote to recommend adoption and/or approval of these policy and planning decisions to the SARAH Board of Directors.
SARAH staff maintains the following Standing Committees of the Board of Directors:
Point-in-Time Count Committee
HMIS Advisory Committee
Coordinated Entry Committee
The HMIS Advisory Committee is responsible for reviewing new policies, procedures, customization, and plans for the local Homeless Management Information System. Representatives on the HMIS Advisory Committee need Executive Director approval from their agency and must be a decision-maker for the agency they represent. There will still be other opportunities for HMIS users to provide input, but this group is expected to represent local leadership with a vested interest in the HMIS as we make decisions about the future of the program.
