The IACA depends on committees and appointed positions (committees of one) to accomplish most of its major goals. The IACA Bylaws establish certain permanent standing committees as well as special committees for projects.

Each committee receives a charter that spells out its goals, restrictions, resources, and guidelines. Charters are intended to give committees guidance and parameters in the absence of day-to-day management from the Executive Board.

The IACA currently has the following committees and appointed positions. If you would like to contribute to any of the committees, please contact the respective chairperson.

The Bylaws Committee ensures congruency between the IACA Bylaws and other IACA publications and offers guidance regarding parliamentary procedure to the IACA Executive Board.
