We have established a number of innovative committees to serve as working groups to pursue areas of specific interest to the various Associations and its members. These committees meet via teleconference and in person throughout the year to help further the mission of the Association. Committee members work in tandum with each association to set public policy goals, guide communication initiatives, as well as identify and address important issues.
