CCPS Project Subcommittees

Each year the CCPS Technical Steering Committee develops a list of projects, and a Project Subcommittee is established for each approved CCPS project or group of associated projects. Members of the Technical Steering Committee suggest individuals with the appropriate experience and expertise for particular projects.
