Reason #4: Council and Committee Meetings

This week’s reason to attend centers on our council and committee meetings. The ARM Councils and Committees meet on the first day of our Member Meeting. Outside of the Member Meeting, these groups meet virtually each month to continually guide ARM’s efforts and act as voices for the rest of the membership in their various areas of expertise.

Our representatives meeting in-person during this time also allows the rest of the consortium to connect with them, learn more about the council/committee activities, and about serving ARM through their roles. This is critical because these representatives are selected through a regular consortium-wide election cycle, which you can learn more about during the New Member Welcome Session.

A list of our councils and committees with brief descriptions:

Stakeholder Executive Committee
The SEC is tasked with advising ARM on strategic business operations. Leaders on the SEC are empowered to form subcommittees, drawing from the Member organizations, RRICs, TAC and EWAC, to assist ARM leadership in ongoing operations, and developing and updating the Program Plan, the Business and Sustainability Plan, and performance metrics.

Regional Collaborative Council
The Regional Collaborative Council provides ARM with critical intelligence about the regional robotics, manufacturing, and workforce efforts taking place across the nation. Council members will support ARM by providing advice regarding its regional priorities and activities such as state funding opportunities, best practices, trends and challenges.

Technical Advisory Committee
Leaders on ARM’s TAC drive the creation and iteration of the technical strategy, including the technology roadmap. TAC members also provide advice regarding potential technology synergies with other Manufacturing USA institutes to ensure a strong national manufacturing ecosystem.

Education and Workforce Advisory Committee
Leaders on the ARM’s EWAC drive the design and deployment of the industry-partnered training and credentialing programs that will inspire, recruit, and prepare the future workforce.

The names of our current representatives can also be found here.
