Committees

SOPHIA is guided by a Steering Committee that leads organizational development and implementation of member services. SOPHIA’s Committees plan and implement activities to help move the organization toward fulfillment of its strategic objectives. Committees are always looking for additional participation from members.  If you want to learn more about these committees or become involved as a member please contact Ellen Schwaller, SOPHIA Director (ellen@hiasociety.org).
