The North American Region has a number of active committees to assist the Board of Directors with various topics of importance and relevance to Region members.

Key areas have a leader, an alternate and designated members.  The leader is a member of the Board of Directors.  The designated members are appointed by the leader in consultation with the alternate, Chair and Board.  The object is to rotate leaders and alternates equitably between U.S. and Canadian members.  Leaders and alternates would advise and consult with the Regional Chairman to ensure that the Chairman, Vice Chairman and the Board are kept well briefed of issues and developments.

Committees are always looking for members who wish to volunteer their time and expertise back to the industry.  If you would like to join one of the following committees, send a note stipulating committee or committees interested in with your CV to the Region Administrator, at  who will forward to those requested for contact.
