Committee Member Handbook

The Academy's Committee Member Handbook is a starting place or resource to understand the structure and function of Academy's committees. The committees are essential to the establishment and implementation of the Academy's mission and strategic goals. Each committee has a specific area of focus and with Board approval will establish their priorities and determine activities for the year.

Any voting fellow or member of the Academy may be appointed to a committee by the Board of Trustees. Learn how to volunteer for a committee.
