Committees for 2018-2019

The Academy's strength lies in its membership. Individuals contribute their skills and resources to the group by serving on its various committees. As a direct link to the membership, the Academy's committees work to impact current laser usage and future developments. For more information on the activities of our committees, download the committee descriptions or contact the appropriate committee chair listed below. A  list of available volunteer leadership positions follow below the photo gallary for Communications, International Relations, Laser Safety, Membership, Regulatory Affairs, University and Academia Relations (U & A), and the U & A Student Scholarship Sub-committee.
