Welcome

Committees

The Society has several committees and work groups. These groups have two purposes. They are designed to expand members’ opportunities to influence and serve the profession at the national level. The groups extend the Board’s ability to provide member benefits in order to attain the goals of the Society. Committee Chairs welcome volunteers and value their expertise and leadership in the organization.

The surest way to enhance your membership is by becoming involved and active.
