Committees

The AGA committee structure enables volunteer members to play an active role in the association’s decision-making process. Each committee is assigned a mission and set of responsibilities associated with a particular area within the association. All committees are called upon by the governing board to evaluate and make recommendations regarding matters under their purview.

In May 2015, we will start accepting nominations for committee terms that begin June 1, 2016. Please check back for future information!
