Committees

Serve on an AATC committee.

One of the best ways for association members to realize a significant return on membership investment is by serving on one of our committees. You’ll meet new people, make new friends, and develop valuable new business relationships. Many of our volunteer-driven committees are open to members with time to give and a passion for serving. From membership to education and community service to communications, we have a wide variety of service opportunities waiting for you.

​All you need to do to get involved is scroll down to the bottom of this page, check the available committee that interests you most, and click submit. Your selection goes directly to the staff director responsible for each committee...and that’s when it’s our job to reach out to you. We begin forming our committees from scratch every January, so roll up your sleeves and sign-up—we look forward to working with you!
