The Inventory of Knowledge and Skills Expectations was developed by the CAS Leadership Development Committee to tell you what it takes to be a CAS leader. The Inventory summarizes the characteristics that have been observed in successful CAS leaders, providing members a roadmap for volunteer development. This allows current volunteers to assess strengths and weaknesses critical to professional development and to the CAS.
The Chairperson’s Manual is a repository of information useful to a committee chairperson in running a CAS committee successfully. Each Committee’s Chair description contains boilerplate CAS policies across committees, as well as committee specific information in regard to each individual committee’s charge and goals.
