There are two types of committees; Standing Committees are permanent committees that meet regularly year-after-year, and Ad hoc Committees which are created for a specific, short term purpose, then collapsed when the assigned task is completed. The current standing committees are highlighted below, in alphabetical order. To be put in touch with a Committee Chair, call the office or send us an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
