NMTC Committees 
Each committee investigate issues, recommend direction and initiates action in areas significant to the NMTC membership, and is chaired by an NMTC Board Member.

We welcome NMTC members to join a committee to offer their perspective and aid in accomplishing the goals of that individual committee, and the NMTC in total.
