Please note: New committee members are asked to serve for two years in order to allow time to identify their interests and then serve and collaborate on advocacy projects (*the end of this term is given for any new members). Following that, all members are welcome to continue to serve as advocates on an ongoing basis for additional school years. Furthermore, the NCLG remains flexible, fully realizing that any commitment can be affected by unforeseen circumstances.
