The Employer has an interest in facilitating the participation of House Officers on certain committees, for the purpose of enhancing both the House Officer's professional development and the work of the committee. The Association may appoint House Officers to represent the Association on specified committees, as set forth in this Article. Prior to accepting an appointment by the HOA to serve as its representative to a committee, or as the alternate representative, the House Officer will notify their Program Director of the anticipated committee appointment and the committee's meeting schedule, and will identify any potential schedule or work assignment obligations that could interfere with regular meeting attendance. The Program Director will, if necessary, meet with the House Officer to discuss how meeting attendance may be accommodated. The Program Director will thereafter make all reasonable efforts to accommodate the House Officer's attendance at committee meetings.
