Board Standing Committees

Board Standing Committees


Much of the work of the Board takes place in committees. A Standing Committee is a permanent committee that serves NRVC on an ongoing basis. An Ad Hoc committee is a temporary committee that addresses a particular interest or need in a designated time frame.

Committees serve as catalysts and advocates for relevant issues making recommendations to the National Board regarding appropriate procedures, research, and development of particular projects.

Any Board member may request to form a new committee. This request must include: the purpose, composition of membership, time commitment, terms of service, anticipated financial needs and resources, and the responsibilities of the committee. The decision to form the new committee will be approved by the Board through formal vote. 

African American Vocation Committee

The African American Vocation Committee is a standing committee whose purpose is to assist the NRVC members in their work with Black/African American candidates who are discerning religious life. The committee ordinarily meets two times a year, once in person the other via electronic means; in the interim, Committee members will weigh in electronically on an as-needed basis.

Members of the African American Religious Committee include: Sister Gayle Lwanga Crumbley, R.G.S.
