To achieve the goals set forth by the Board of Directors and to manage the association's activities, HPBA has established standing committees. The chairmen of these committees are chosen by the HPBA Chairman (except for the Technical Committee which holds elections from within the committee and the Nominating Committee whose chairman is required to be the immediate past chairman of HPBA). Each committee has its own charter, copies of which may be obtained by calling the HPBA office.
Members who are interested in serving on a committee, or would like more information on committee activities, are urged to contact the HPBA staff or the appropriate committee chairman. HPBA currently has eight active committees:
Chairman: Rodger Holland, Supreme Fireplaces
