Committee activity is the life blood of the Association. Participation gives members an opportunity to grow and broaden their perspectives and to observe other industry members at work. Committee members are made of volunteers interested in being involved in the Association and the President appoints Committee Chairpersons. Each committee is assigned a board member liaison to help the committee functioning and reporting to the Board of Directors. Committee meetings are open to the general membership unless designated as a "closed meeting" by the President. The Board of Directors may change committees at any time. Current committees are as follows.
