ACCSP was established by its founding members as a committee-based organization. Committees, composed primarily of representatives from the partners, provide the framework for the collaborative processes that create and manage the data standards and govern the Program.

The following guidelines are designed to promote accountability and continuity in the committee process for both ACCSP and partner staff.  Continuity is particularly important to forward movement and effective participation on many of the long-term committee projects.

As a committee member, you are responsible for representing your agency or state/user group (advisors). You are expected to attend all meetings and to the best of your ability stay informed of the topics and projects. Please read the Participation Guidelines for ACCSP Committees, for more information.
