Join a committee
Committees comprise members from varied backgrounds who work as a team to achieve specific goals.
Join or start a Working Group
Occasionally a working group is formed to complete a specific goal approved by Provincial Council. The group disbands once the goal is achieved. Members are also involved in committees and working groups external to Speech and Hearing BC, including the Pan Canadian Alliance and the Paediatric Advisory Group.
