The majority of ILDA's work is conducted through committees composed of Member volunteers. We always welcome new volunteers!
Please contact the committee chair listed below for more information about committee activities or to find out how you can participate. You can write to the Committee chairs by searching the ILDA online directory for their name (or if they are not the company contact, search for their company's name).
