Committees exist to help further the mission of the ABO and spread out the responsibilities of the Board as a whole.


  1. Committee members consist of ABO Diplomates, but may include a minority of SMEs who are not Diplomates if approved by the Chair of the Board.
  2. Each committee has a designated Chair that communicates with the Board and leads committee meetings.
  3. Each committee prepares a report on its activities and submits it to the Directors for review no less than one week prior to a Board meeting.
