JASAN Committees

JASAN has several committees and task forces.  The chair of each committee is a member of the JASAN Executive Committee.  The purpose statement for each committee for the current fiscal year is based on the priorities set forth by the Executive Committee, approved by the membership, and detailed in the annual Program of Work. JASAN Members are welcome to serve on a committee!  Simply complete this committee interest form and we will follow up.
