Any business that the LPNC conducts outside of its annual convention is handled in a committee. These committees are listed below with any links to more information about each.

At present, all LPNC committees should be using the Slack application for internal communication. LPNC maintains a Slack workspace for this purpose, and specific Slack channels for each committee. Any LPNC member is welcome to observe and comment on any committee's proceedings. In order to observe or get involved, however, an LPNC member must join the LPNC Slack workspace.

If you are interested in serving on a committee, contact the LPNC Chair or the committee chair.
