Committees

AMCAW’s committees are the engine that propels the organization forward to meet its goals. More than 50 volunteers from the metal clay community serve on 10 different committees to support AMCAW’s initiatives. The founders offer a heartfelt “thank you” to these volunteers who carry the load and help us meet the promise to serve this community.
