ASMC activates various standing and ad hoc committees to carry out its initiatives and goals: Standing committees work on a continual basis, and ad hoc committees are temporary and created for a specific task and cease to exist after the task has been completed. Standing committees are subject to comply with California's open meetings act (the Brown Act). The ASMC Board of Directors reserves the right to activate other ad hoc committees as needed throughout the year, depending on needs and objectives.
The Programming Committee is a standing committee that exists to provide funding for student organizations and campus departments planning extracurricular campus activities, programs, and resources for the students of Moorpark College. Funding offered by the Programming Committee is made possible through the collection of an optional Student Activity Fee, as well as funding received from the Moorpark College Bookstore. The ASMC Director of Budget and Finance chairs the Programming Committee. This committee operates in accordance with California's open meeting law (the Brown Act).
