SPANZA has a number of specialty subcommittees, listed below.  The subcommittees are open to all members to join, and members are notified via the monthly email newsletter when the turn over of committees is due to happen.  It is planned that each subcommittee will be open for members to apply every 2 years (in odd numbered years).

All Subcommittees have Terms of Reference which can be found in the members section under ‘Member Documents’ (once you have logged in as a member).
