Committees

Our accomplishments are realized through the ongoing activities and commitments of our strong committees and tireless members and volunteers.

Make a Difference!

With the completion of many initiatives, the Council has streamlined our members’ efforts into two focused committees:
 
Policy Committee- This committee's focus is on key issues and determining the "critical policies" necessary in order to achieve our organization's goals and mission.  The committee is comprised of key leaders with interest in Education, Life Science, Broadband, Government Affairs Transportation and Infrastructure needs.
 
Communication Committee- This committee's focus is on membership recruitment and retention efforts, external and internal communications and membership programs and events.
