Any committee is only as good as the most knowledgeable, determined, and vigorous person on it.  There must be somebody who provides the flame. 
Lady Bird Johnson

While there is a President’s Chain, a Board of Directors, and an Executive Director to provide guidance and leadership for NCSLA, the heart of our organization resides in the work accomplished by our many committee members.  Whether it is planning events, growing membership, writing the newsletter, or advocating for science education for all, the committee chairs and their members are the ones who make NCSLA a viable organization.
