Our Homecoming Team

In any kind of organization, an organizational chart with specific roles and responsibilities is necessary for a smooth functioning of the team. Our Homecoming Team is no exception.

After reviewing several organizational charts, both Lyn and I came up with the organizational chart below.

Each box represents a committee (except the chairman and vice-chairman). Each committee will be headed by a chairman with members under him/her. The Executive committee is composed of the Chairman, Vice-Chairman and the heads of the Secretariat and Finance Committee. Below is a list of roles and responsibilities. It is not comprehensive but could be a starting point. Feel free to add more specific to your team.
