Committees

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, contact the appropriate committee chair listed below.
