CCM has three standing committees that help drive our association’s actions and policies on various issues. Committees are responsible for addressing the issues in their area of expertise and providing a recommended course of action to staff and the Board of Directors.

In addition, we have three issue area task forces that are responsible for specific issue areas of concern.  Committees and Task Forces were reformatted in 2021 to align with the organization’s strategic plan.

If you are interested in joining either a committee or task force please fill out the interest form at the bottom of the page.
