Announcements: “Please come join us!”
Committees welcome the participation of all CCAPS members. Committee
participation is rewarding when you sense the achievement of your committee’s
tasks, but it is especially fulfilling in the development of new connections
with colleagues across the nation. If you have the time and interest, your
assistance on one or more committees would be greatly appreciated.
Please see the list below for brief descriptions of how you could in all
committees and the contact information of committee chairs. As you will
notice, most committees have some work that occurs throughout the year and some
that happens at the ACPA Convention. Participation in committee work does not
require convention attendance.
Committees are chaired by directorate members, who can provide continuity in
their leadership of the committees. Please contact the chairs to learn about
specific opportunities for involvement. Also feel free to contact Chanda
Corbett, CCAPS Chair, for more information about involvement.
