Each active member is required to be a member of the division(s) for which it qualifies. Divisions set their own agendas, ensuring that the members’ needs and concerns are addressed. Each division’s leaders are elected from its members.
Besides the work of technical committees within each division, the association also maintains standing committees that address topics of broad concern to the industry and the association. These committees include: Executive Committee, Audit Committee, Magazine/Marketing Committee, Product Liability & Safety Committee, Training & Education Committee, and Task Force on Industry Reputation.
