KAMM Committees

KAMM Committees

We encourage KAMM members to participate in KAMM committees.   Participation in committees allows KAMM members to promote issues, challenges, and best practices that are important to them as well as an opportunity to network.  KAMM members should be recruited to assist in committee activities, develop ground rules, and delegate activities.  Ultimately, the committees will help develop and recommend policy to the KAMM Board.
