OSBA Committees

Committees are responsible for many of the programs OSBA is involved with. Standing committees are formed to handle long-running tasks until such time the OSBA board determines they are no longer needed.  Ad-Hoc committees are formed on an as-needed basis to complete a task and are disbanded once the task is complete.

If you have questions for a specific committee, please contact the appropriate committee chair.

For volunteer opportunities, contact any OSBA Officer, Director, or Representative..
