While each of our Committees has a specific focus, the organization works collaboratively to ensure our goals are met. The Executive Committee is composed of the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and the Chairs of each standing committee. The ELT consists of the President, Vice-President, and Treasurer who must be VMAS Individual Members to serve a two-year election term.
Committee Chair positions are also two-year terms and selected by the ELT. Chair members must be VMAS Individual or Champion members. Each Committee also has Coordinator roles that help VMAS execute our mission and vision. Coordinator roles are designed to give active volunteers the opportunity to try new things, fine-tune existing skills, or exercise their network/ expertise.
