The Council provides a forum for sustained cooperation, coordination and collaboration across similarly focused organizations, and allows input into the programs and services of MAPS National.

These standing committees may include those to assist each of the five Directors with their duties, with additional standing committees and task forces formed around special issues, activities, functions and priorities at the local and national level.
