Technical Group Leadership Volunteers

Congratulations to the New OSA Technical Group Leaders!


OSA is pleased to announce the newly elected chairs for eleven OSA Technical Groups. OSA Technical Groups are vibrant and active communities that connect OSA members with colleagues and leaders within specialized topic areas from around the world.

Elected by their fellow members, each chair is responsible for creating an engagement plan for their group, providing an annual report on group activities to the OSA Board of Meetings and designating an executive committee of their fellow OSA members to assist them in their efforts. These newly elected chairs and their executive committees will work together to organize special events featuring tailored programming for members at OSA meetings, facilitate online forums to engage in discussions, and deliver focused information on the latest developments in the field as well as pursue opportunities to explore emerging topics throughout their three year terms.
