Committees are the lifeline of NMRT. The list of links below reflect the work of some of these committees and their dedicated members.
If you don't see the committee you are interested in, check the current roster for the chairperson's name and send them an email. Not all committees have web pages, so not all committees are listed below.
The detailed workings of all NMRT committees can be viewed in the NMRT Handbook.
