Committees

MCA Committees are comprised of member volunteers and technical advisors, charged with conducting programs aimed at growing the use of metal in the building envelope. The bylaws of MCA designate three standing committees – Executive, Finance/Audit, and Governance. The MCA board of directors has established additional committees (see below) to conduct the business of the association.
