BCTA/NA Committees

Each committee will have a committee description. The purpose of a committee description is to create an agreed upon job delineation articulating the tasks and responsibilities of a particular committee, working within the bylaws of the Association that will fulfill aspects of the mission of the Association.  The Board is in process of solidifying each committee description and will post them below as they are approved.
