The work of the NAACP is done by Standing Committees and not in the General Membership meeting. These committees are called Standing because they continue to exist and operate throughout the life of the organization.  Only in rare instances when the President and/or Executive Committee has determined that a matter is time sensitive and pressing should any discussion be allowed to take place during a General Membership meeting.  In those instances, when they arise, the respective standing committee should take the lead by investigating and verifying/validating all facts, prior to the Unit taking any action. Join A Committee! The Branch’s strongest asset is its membership and our member's willingness to share skills, knowledge and expertise.  Please click NAACP Bylaws (pgs. 42-59, Article VIII) for descriptions and other committees.   Please send the Branch an email via if you are interested in joining a committee(s).  Click Unit Bylaws of of the NAACP to view.  Click Guide for written committee reports. Click Unit Financial & Bookkeeping Guide  for guidance in the area of Unit financial management.
