Within the LSU Ambassadors organization, there are ten committees designated to implement different aspects of service to either the LSU community or the organization itself. Each committee has an appointed Chair, who serves on the Executive Council, and one or more Associate Chairs, who apply for their positions and are selected by the Chair of that committee.
In addition to the ten committees, there is also an At-Large Committee. The At-Large Committee is the liaison between the LSU Ambassadors Council and the General Membership of the organization. They serve to represent the best interest of the General Members and to voice their opinions to the Executive Council.
Each LSU Ambassador is assigned to one of seven standing committees. Standing committees meet at least once a semester. All LSU Ambassadors service and involvement is organized and implemented through the committee system.
Furthermore, there are two selective committees. LSU Ambassadors must apply and be selected to serve on these committees. Those selected must perform the tasks required of them in both their standing committee and selective committee. Selective committees meet often throughout the semester depending on the committee’s duties and purpose.
