Standing Committees

SNAME conducts its work through a number of committees. Standing Committees govern and manage the Society's operations by establishing policies and managing staff.

Standing Committees have dedicated microsites which serve as their main online hubs.  These microsites feature  libraries and eGroups with content available only to committee members.  Links to the Standing Committee microsites are below.  Committee members may wish to bookmark these microsites for easy access to committee messages, work documents, and other content
