Standing committees of the REA
Standing committees are organized to help the REA sustain its focus on the three major contexts for religious education, as delineated in the three committee titles:
- Religious Education in Academic Disciplines & Institutions
- Religious Education in Faith Communities
- Religious Education in Public Life and the Global Community
Each Standing Committee has a chair who serves on the Board, and as many other members as are appropriate to the task (these are designated as such by the Board through its nominating committee).
The Standing Committees promote the effective functioning of the Association through their input on specific foci. Standing Committees may also organize national or regional events apart from the annual meeting.
