Qualities and Habits of Functional Human Service Teams

Write a 2-page paper outlining how and why you would select members for one of the committees or the team listed below. The committee or team will function within a local community action group:

 

  1. A committee dedicated to securing a financial grant for advertising a new housing program.
  2. A team focused on recruiting volunteers to assist at a local food shelf.
  3. A committee tasked with researching a new electronic system that tracks detailed data on clients’ preferences of services.

In your paper, address the following questions:

 

  • Will you use an application process or simply appoint members?
  • What criteria will be used to select committee or team members?
  • Is diversity of organizational positions and skill sets required or desired? Give the rationale for requiring or desiring diversity for the committee or team members.
  • Are selection criteria based on length of service, job performance, or other factors?
  • Who will be responsible for setting overall goals and timelines once the committee is formed?
