ACT's committees work on behalf of the Board of Directors to provide advice and guidance on the organization's operations, leadership, programming, and policy; helping the Board build a solid foundation for a strong future.     
Why volunteer to serve on a committee? Committees provide a unique opportunity for members to dive deep into a specific issue or topic area that is key to the current health and future success of the organization.  As a membership based professional association, we rely on the skills and knowledge of our members to help advance the organization, so we encourage members that have backgrounds and/or professional experience within the committees listed below, to think about serving.  By surrounding yourself with others who do what you do, you'll not only learn about the industry, expand your professional network and acquire new knowledge but you'll be helping ACT grow at the same time.

Interested? You can learn more about ACT's Board Committees below.  If you are interested in serving on a committee, please take a few minutes to submit a statement of interest, noting the committee or committees you would like to be considered for by the Board.  Statements of interest must be submitted by November 22, 2019.  The Executive Committee will review all statements of interest and recommend committee members to the Board of Directors for approval at the December 9, 2019, Board Meeting.  Selected members will serve 2-year terms through December 31, 2021.

What else is there to know?  Most committees will meet a minimum of four times a year.
