Ad Hoc Committee
Ad Hoc Committees are one purpose only committees put into place to accomplish a specific goal.
Comprised of Past TDMAW Presidents as selected/chosen by the Advisory Committee Chair, this committee is a support team to the current Board of Directors. Even though they are unable to make decisions on behalf of TDMAW, the committee is advised to make recommendations to the Board for their review and implementation.
Their current initiative is to update the Rules of the Road, as there have been a few bylaw changes. During this process of updating these important documents, the committee brings forth new ideas to help improve the association.
Chapter Development Committee
This group works within a metro/county area to contact tool, die, and machining candidates members (prospects), with a view toward generating enough interest to form a local chapter of the TDMAW in new cities. They meet with groups of candidates, and work closely with Group Buying, Insurance, and Entertainment committees-all primary reasons to join TDMAW.
Cooperative Programs Committee
Develops programs to use the video, resources, etc. Ensures that TDMAW is able to leverage
dollars spent in other states, by other groups, to advance our cause in Wisconsin.
Hazardous Waste Committee
Monitors local and State regulations on waste disposal and waste reduction. Disseminates
information from government and private companies and makes recommendations to members.
Member Education Committee
This committee is focused on training for TDMAW members and their employees. They identify
training needs felt by members, find possible courses and instructors, and schedule the classes.
This could be management training, as well as shop personnel.
Membership Involvement Committee
