Get Involved Today, Be the Leadership of Tomorrow

Those who volunteer with SCCAOR Committees receive a wealth of benefits in exchange for giving back to the industry that has supported them. They receive greater visibility, professional connections, and insights into our industry that others simply don’t have.

Our committees provide valuable feedback and recommendations to our Board of Directors, so that they can make the best policy decisions on behalf of our members. Joining a committee is often the first step taken on the pathway to becoming a member of SCCAOR’s Leadership Team of Officers and Directors.

Please read below for more information about each committee. Then fill out the form with your contact information and committee preferences. A committee chair or staff liaison will contact you about the next steps. Thank you for your interest in contributing your valuable time to the success of your Association!
