Committees

The below committees are our key groups for driving forward strategy at the WPA. All four feed into the Executive committee which makes strategic decisions for the Association’s direction and relay their findings to the WPA Board.

The Board itself is served by smaller committees that aid in the running of the association, these are the Governance, Administration and Audit and Oversight committees.
