Committees for the 2018-20 Biennium

The Society President defines the functions of each committee and appoints the chairperson. Operational committees are determined on a biennial basis per the Policies and Procedures Manual. The term of service is two years. No member may serve more than two consecutive terms on the same committee. Some committees may require travel.
