In addition to ad hoc committees formed for special purposes, e.g., the 2017 Eclipse Celebration, there are four permanent (standing) committees.  Each is listed below along with a brief description of its charter.  Members are encouraged to get involved at the committee level—that’s where most of the real results happen!
