Committees, boards, panels, and task forces help the ABCFP council and staff deliver the association's programs and initiatives. Joining one is a great way to become involved in the profession while earning credit for professional development hours.
Statutory committees are defined under the Professional Governance Act. They are comprised primarily of ABCFP registrants and ABCFP staff and must include at least one lay member (individuals who are not registrants of the profession). Lay members provide an external perspective and or bring specialized expertise and knowledge to the committee as well as ensuring the committee’s work meets the public interest.
ABCFP statutory committees and other boards, panels, and task forces along with their Terms of Reference are listed below. An asterick (*) next to a committee name indicates that the committee membership includes a public lay member(s).
Selection Process for ABCFP Committees and Task Forces outlines how committee appointments are made. Please contact the staff liaison if you are interested in participating on a committee.
