ACFAS taps into the talent of its members to lead the organization into the future. Every year, the College brings in new volunteers to provide the energy required to bring to fruition the College’s strategic initiatives.
This work happens at the committee, task force, educational program faculty, and regional level of the College.

ACFAS Committees and Task Forces are as follows:
