Operating Divisions' Committees: 2016 Term

Committee Functions
The primary function of a committee is to contribute to the efficient operation of an organization.  A committee is concerned with the communication of information and with assisting the leadership in the decision making process by providing needed information and recommending actions.  These standing committees exist to accomplish these tasks.
 
Standing Committees perform a continuing function necessary for the on-going operation of the Association.  They operate indefinitely and are provided for in the Association Bylaws or the Board Manual of Policy and Procedures. All intended committee actions are subject to the approval of the Board of Directors/Executive Committee.
