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 and centers are called upon by the governing board to evaluate and make recommendations regarding matters under their purview.

We will be accepting nominations for committees and centers for terms starting June 1, 2018, in the spring. Please check back for updates.
