Executive Committee

The role of the Executive Committee (EC) is to promote and manage the business of the BTS. The EC ensures that proper records are kept of appointments of officers, the proceedings of all BTS and EC meetings, and that accurate accounting records are kept. The EC is composed of a group of dedicated professionals who work in academia, industry or government toxicology. Nominations for appointment to the EC are sought from the Nominations Subcommittee, and BTS members are encouraged to express interest in serving.
