The success and growth of the SCA is due to the efforts of volunteers serving on our committees. The Board of Directors has emphasized increased committee work as one of our goals. We encourage you and other members of your firm to choose one or more of these committees on which you’d like to help. If you or an employee of your company is interested in joining a committee, please contact Megan Short at the SCA Office at 417-862-1313 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information, chair contact information, or to discuss which committee would be the best fit.
