Board Committee

The Board chairperson and vice president set agendas, approve events and set guidelines for board actions. The program committee members manage events, communications, suggest themes, review applications for scholarships, prepare acceptance and invitation letters and carry out other ad hoc tasks. In addition, the program committee is responsible for the onsite management of events.

In compliance with health safety protocols and in support of efforts to curb influenza and COVID outbreaks during the winter months, our staff have been engaged in hybrid and remote work.
