The three CASE commissions—Alumni Relations, Communications and Marketing, and Philanthropy—support the creation and dissemination of knowledge in the advancement disciplines.
The commissions frame and direct research to examine and evaluate professional practices and to develop and monitor programs and services in the three disciplines to ensure that they reflect current knowledge, emerging issues and trends, and the highest ethical and professional standards. They also advise CASE on programming and services for professionals within their respective areas of advancement.
They communicate regularly about their work and initiatives, first to the CASE board and then to the district boards and conference planners.
Members are expected to:
Commissions meet twice a year in the fall and spring. Meetings generally last one and a half days in length.
CASE pays travel, hotel and on-site expenses for commission members' participation in the two regularly scheduled meetings.
Commission members traditionally serve three-year terms.
CASE offers many opportunities to get involved.
