BCxA Committees are currently being redesigned with new charters and new positions. Chair positions will be appointed by the Board of Directors. Both voting and non-voting volunteer positions are available.
The BCxA is a volunteer organization. When our members choose to volunteer on a committee, they open up a world of possibilities for networking, professional growth, and career opportunities while contributing to the profession in which you make your living. Committees are the backbone of the association. They serve as a forum for exchange of information, help to advance the technical level of the industry, work to develop guidelines and standards, provide education and training, and connect the BCxA to many other institutions. There is a great variety of committees in all areas of the industry. To get more information or to join any of the committees see the committee charters and volunteer forms under each committee name.
