Committee Overview

Aside from the registry itself, all of the ABCA’s functions, programs and activities are managed by committees. Committees are appointed by the Board of Directors and report to the board. While the committees are usually staffed by Board members, regular members may also serve. If you have an interest and experience in a particular area, contact the President. The ABCA is member run and welcomes your involvement.

Members may address comments, suggestions and questions directly to the appropriate Committee Chair. Note that grant and promotional money applications and Hall of Fame nomination forms should be sent to the Secretary.
