Join an AABC Committee
Apply by November 15th
AABC's diverse member volunteers are the strength of our organization. AABC has a small staff; and it is because of our members that we are able to accomplish so much.
This year more than 50 members are volunteering on AABC committees and task forces. The variety of expertise and experience these members contribute to the organization through committee work is incredibly valuable.
You, too, can become more involved by joining a committee. All levels of expertise and experience welcome. Members, apply now to serve a one-year term in 2024. We strive to match members with committees that align with their experience, skills and interests. The information you share on your application will help us do this.
