Executive SC Description:
The Executive Sub-committee (Executive SC), is comprised of a Chair, a Chair-Elect, a Past Chair, and up to three additional Members of the AIRR-C. Each term for Chair usually lasts three AIRR-C Meeting intervals. The first interval is as Chair-Elect, the second as Chair, and the third as Past Chair. In all three intervals, the Chair serves as a Member of the Executive SC. Members of the Executive SC other than Chair, Chair-Elect, and Past Chair may serve (if elected and wishing to do so) for up to three AIRR-C Meeting intervals as an Executive SC member.
The Executive SC provides leadership for the AIRR-C by having monthly meetings in which AIRR Community governance, finances, communications, meetings and other initiatives are discussed. The Executive SC receives reports from the AIRR-C Sub-committees and Working Groups, endorses manuscripts on behalf of the AIRR-C, assists with resolving any disputes within the AIRR-C or its SCs and WGs, and reviews financial statements from the TAbS Finance and Audit Committee. The Executive SC determines how the AIRR-C budget is allocated and decides on funding applications or other awards for AIRR-C members.
