Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee members are volunteers who are selected to serve for renewable 2-year terms. The committee members will be staggered so every term there are new members added. The committee will advise the executive team as needed, help with the strategic planning and fundraising, and support the outreach and expansion of the Arab Political Science Network.
