AACOM Councils and Groups

AACOM Councils

Created by the AACOM Board of Deans, AACOM councils support the work of the association on behalf of all member colleges. Each dean appoints voting members for each council. Council officers or AACOM staff liaisons may also invite non-voting members to participate, as appropriate and according to a council's bylaws. 

Councils typically meet twice a year and collaborate regularly through the AACOMmunities online forum. Click below to learn more about each council:
