Committees and Other Positions
Appointments to committees and other positions were made in June 2021 unless a different date is shown as [mm/yy]. In most cases, their terms expire when their successors are appointed, usually at the next June Business Meeting; when there is some other known expiration date, it is indicated as [to mm/yy]. Some relatively quiet positions may have been “held over” (and so marked) from previous years.
We also keep an extensive history of committee memberships.
