Constitution and Bylaws Committee
Finance and Appropriations Committee
Partnership Committee

All Officers, Committee Chairs and Type Representatives serve on the ESIP Federation Executive Committee. The positions marked with an asterisk (*) also serve on the Board of the Foundation for Earth Science. ^^These 2 committees have been inactive for a number of years. A current proposal from the Constitution and Bylaws Committee would eliminate them.
