Hey! Who wants to serve on this committee?
Hands go up.
Great! We have a committee! See you next semester when we convene.
Months go by.
Staff coordinator to random committee member: "Say, do you guys have a chair? Because I need to know who to coordinate with."
Random committee member starts to wonder the same thing.
Random committee member: "Say, um... So the first deadlines appear to be coming up. Who's the chair of this committee?"
Crashing silence. Another week passes.
RCM: "So... we really need a chair, right?"
Other committee members do the internet equivalent of becoming very interested in their shoes; RCM begins to get a sinking feeling.
One week later: "Okay, fine. If no one else is volunteering, I'll do it."
Committee all of a sudden rediscovers their e-mail to cheer RCM's volunteerism.
I'll give you one guess as to who is playing the role of RCM in this little play.
