Committees are where most of the real work of the ACG takes place. Many of the policy and project decisions reached by the ACG Board of Trustees begin with ideas raised at the committee meetings and developed by a specific committee.
In 1985, the College had 18 different committees, and a total of 102 committee members. By contrast, the College now has 22 different committees with more than 500 committee members. This is the source of the College’s growth and strength.
So, take your time to review what ACG’s committees have been doing for you. If you are interested in taking a more active role in the College, please fill out the Join a Committee form.
