Committees

The work of the CMLA is primarily accomplished through committees. Below is a table of the various committees currently active within the CMLA and the respective chairperson(s) of each committee. We encourage all members of the CMLA to actively participate in committee work. If you wish to join a committee, simply contact the committee chair.

The annual reports of the various committees are available to CMLA members in the Reports section.
