To be able to manage a war memorial site properly, it is often necessary to have some sort of committee. If you are setting up a new war memorial site, it is a good idea to have such a committee right from the outset. And if you have been managing a war memorial site without such a committee, it is a good idea to consider setting up one right away.
The roles of the war memorial site management committee
The main role to be performed by the war memorial site management committee is that of making decisions on how the site is to be managed. The committee may, for instance, make decisions on the people to be hired, to work at the war memorial site. The committee may also make decisions on events to be held at the war memorial site. The committee can go further, and be involved in fundraising activities – to get the money necessary for maintenance of the war memorial site.
War memorial site management committee membership
The war memorial site committee membership can, for instance, be drawn from families that have their members interred at the war memorial site. Alternatively, the committee membership can be drawn from prominent members of the community around the war memorial site. If what you are looking at is a big/major war memorial site, the government may also want to have its representatives in the management committee.
How to establish the war memorial site management committee
You have to start by calling a meeting of all people who have an interest in the war memorial site. The goal here would be to invite them to a meeting. Those may include the people whose family members are interred there, the members of the community around the war memorial site and local government representatives. You can search for such people’s phone contacts, and proceed to call them one by one — inviting them to the meeting. That shouldn’t be too expensive. If you are on a prepaid phone plan, you’d just need to ensure that you have enough credit, before starting to make the calls. Thus, for instance, if you are a MetroPCS subscriber, you’d need to visit the metro pcs pay bill site, and buy more airtime there. Even if you are not on a prepaid plan (that is, if you are on a postpaid plan), you will still have to pay metropcs bill after making the calls. All in all, the most important thing is to invite the interested parties to a meeting (even if you have to visit them in person).
It is at the interested parties’ meeting then, that you’d float the idea of setting up a war memorial site management committee. You may need to lobby the interested parties, to get them to buy into the idea.
Once the idea of establishing a war memorial site management committee is endorsed, the next step is to decide who the committee members will be. You may start out with interim committee members, before organizing an election where proper officials would be elected.
Once you have a committee in place, the most important thing is to ensure that the committee members meet frequently. It is in the course of such meetings that decisions on the usage and management of the war memorial site would be made.
