The SDPA currently has nine standing committees that are fundamental to the functioning of SDPA and are considered permanent. In addition to standing committees, SDPA has operating committees created by the Board to accomplish programs consistent with the SDPA Mission. Operating committees may be active, inactive or proposed for the future. Committees are the work forces of our Association. SDPA committee members are dedicated to achieving the SDPA Mission by providing leadership and quality service to our members and to the community.For more information on any of the committees please use the links provided below. See Committee Chairs-Members Chart from the Policies and Procedures regarding how one becomes a chair or member of a committee. Also, see Governing Documents and Committee Handbook for rules related to committees generally.
