ADISA Committee Structure


In 2014, the the Alternative & Direct Investment Securities Association's Board of Directors approved a new committee structure for committees to have clearer expectations and deliverables. We anticipate that each committee will have two co-chairs and one or two vice chairs so that committee work can continue when there is a leadership change (every two years). Each standing committee also has a defined purpose based on the strategic initiatives of the Board.
