Committees - Overview

Committees are the top level of work groups in the society. Committees are able to create sub-committees or project teams as deemed necessary by the members. Member companies are asked to assign at least one representative to each team, and many have several involved in the activity.

There is significant cross-communication between Committees, facilitated at the highest levels between chairs, as well as at the Board level.
