Technical Committees offer members the opportunity of public service on a national scale and a chance to participate in the process of constructive change in the public interest. Each committee has at least one face-to-face meeting (at PWX), and may hold additional face-to-face or conference call meetings during the year, dependent upon a substantive agenda. If subcommittees/task forces are established, members of committees may serve as liaisons to those groups. The nomination period for service on 2016-2017 Technical Committees has now closed, but the subsequent year's nomination period will open in February 2017.
