Board of Governors Committees

The objectives of the AYA Board of Governors are carried out largely through the efforts of working committees that enlist “hands-on” engagement by all members. Each formal Board meeting throughout the year includes time for committees to gather in person, and many of them continue to confer by e-mail or conference call in between Board meetings.
