In addition to the Board of Directors and the Executive and Nominating Committees, standing committees include: Government Relations, Programs and Future Leaders. The ACIL Chair may appoint and disband special committees as special projects and issues arise.
Committees typically function under the direction of a chair and vice chair and with the support of an ACIL staff liaison. Subcommittees or task forces may be formed to carry out specific projects in the course of the program year.
ACIL members may also represent the association by serving on outside committees for the government or related trade associations. To view ACIL's policy on appointment to these committees, click here.
