Committees of PATS for 1999
The Constitution of the Professional Association for Technological
Studies designates a number of working committees, both standing
and select. Following is a list of the current committees of PATS,
each of which may have subcommittees. Standing Committees shall have a
permanent status within the organization. Select Committees shall be formed
when deemed appropriate by the President, and shall serve a specific use
for a specific and temporary period of time. The President and Vice President
jointly have supervisory power (i.e., oversight, not necessarily chairship)
over the general conduct of all committees (with the exception of the Executive
Steering Committee) and will be the chief liaisons with the specific chairpersons
of all committees.
The Executive Steering Committee is composed of the officers
of the organization and guides the overall, strategic direction and activities
of PATS and its committees.
The Presentations Committee is responsible for our campus wide
interdisciplinary technology panels or speaking events, provides mini-workshops
on topics such as how to construct a Program of Study or a Web page, offers
assistance to both students and the department regarding presentations
at technology related conferences (such as the annual ITEA or the T3
conferences), and is involved in other presentational activities concerning technology
in its many forms in relation to society, the environment, etc.

The Social Committee is responsible for planning and
hosting such events as our fall welcome picnic, the December Holiday Party,
the Spring Graduation Party, and informal get-togethers. In addition,
this committee seeks to welcome students new to the program, helping them
to get oriented. And, members try to maintain contact with alumni.
The Communications Committee is responsible for maintaining
and developing the Newsletter, Web site, Listserve, and E-News as regular
sources of technology-related information for members of PATS and Technology
Education. It plans and executes all public announcements of events
and provides information about the organization through brochures, fliers,
advertisement and other publications.
