Organization Committees are comprised of volunteers identified by the Leadership Development Committee. They report to the national office and support the national office in implementing the strategic directions set by the Board. A committee chair is appointed by the President in consultation with the Leadership Development Committee and serves a two-year term concurrent with the President. Committee members serve three-year staggered terms, one-third rotating off each year.
