Committees

CIDQ could not develop or enhance the NCIDQ exams without the support and expertise of countless volunteers. Below are the various Committees and Task Forces for which we recruit volunteers on an annual basis, along with a list of expectations and time commitments. Individuals are appointed to a committee for a two year term, which may be terminated by either CIDQ or the individual at any time for any reason.  On the other hand, Task Force appointments are typically less than one year in length.  If you are interested in serving on one of our Exam Development Committees, please check back here in mid-2020 to complete our Volunteer Interest Form for service starting in 2021.
