Committees are the backbone of all of our chapter activities. Members are encouraged to get involved on local, regional and national levels.

Future plans include more active involvement in government affairs, research and certification preparation. HVCMSA welcomes your participation on committees. If you are interested in learning more about a committee, please contact us.
