Committees

SPFA committees are comprised solely of SPFA member volunteers. Combined they commit thousands of hours of service, leadership, expertise, and guidance to SPFA activities. It is only with the practical expertise from the field that collectively our resources can benefit all members. If you are interested in participating on a particular committee, please contact the chairperson.
