As a membership organization, the MN Association of Charter Schools depends on individuals from member schools and associate member institutions, as well as individual members, to be active participants in developing and implementing the programs and activities of the Association.
To facilitate the work of the Association, the Board of Directors establishes various program and activity committees and gives each committee a written charge. Every committee is composed of member volunteers who contribute their time, skills and experience to assist the Association in building the capacity of schools, promoting quality and assuring accountability among schools, and promoting charter school choice.

Committees conduct their work through live, video and teleconference meetings depending on the work the committee is undertaking.
