Committees have been established by the ADE Council and President both to accomplish specific goals and undertake long-term planning on issues of interest to the association. With the exception of the Nominating Committee, members and chairs are appointed by the President with the concurrence of the Council directly after the Annual Meeting.
Committee members must be ADE members in good standing, and the association discourages committees from having more than one member from the same project or institution (an exception to this policy is the Local Arrangements Committee). The president serves as ex officio a member of all committees except the nominating committee.
Committees for 2017-2018 are:
Boyd Award Committee, Tony Curtis, chairs
Boydston Award Committee
Butterfield Award Committee, Roger Bruns, chair
Constitution and Bylaws Committee, Thomas Mason, chair
Federal Policy Committee, Mary Jo Binker and Christopher Brick, co-chairs
