COMMITTEES

The President of the AABIP, who oversees committee functions during a two-year tenure, appoints committee chairs. Each year, the committee chair develops an action plan that is shared with the membership. Committee chairs are asked to report back to the AABIP membership during a general business meeting held after the yearly scientific meeting.
