The ASPRS Education and Professional Development Committee is responsible for the education program of the Society. The Committee provides leadership, guidance and assistance to various educationally-oriented activities within the Society, including publications, awards, and conference/meeting technical programs. The committee also maintains liaisons with educationally-oriented groups in government, academia, and private industry.
The Education and Professional Development Committee is headed by a Chairperson appointed by the ASPRS President and approved by the Executive Committee. The Chairperson serves a term of three years from date of appointment. The Chairperson is responsible for planning and conducting Committee meetings, maintaining Committee records, producing an annual report of Committee activities, and reporting to the ASPRS Executive Committee and Board of Directors, as well as cooperating with the ASPRS Awards, Certification, Long Range Planning, Workshops and other Society Committees. The Chairperson appoints a Deputy Chair, who must be approved by the Education and Professional Development Committee, who will serve as Chairperson in his/her absence.
