Help to shape tomorrow’s standards for the gear industry by joining one of AGMA’s 23 active Technical Committees. AGMA technical committees hold over 100 meetings each year to develop the standards in our industry.
You could make an impact both in the United States and around the world. Many of our Technical Committees act as a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to their ISO counterpart Working Groups (WG) for the development of ISO standards as well.
A complete list our Technical Committees is below. You can learn about the individual committee work here. You can also learn more by talking with a member of our technical department at 703.684.0211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
AGMA membership is the only requirement for participation on a Technical Committee. Committee membership has two levels of participation: Observer and Active.
All new committee members start as an observer member. An observer member is not a voting member, but may participate in committee activities. Observer members will receive notices of meetings and minutes, and only upon request will receive drafts of standards.
An active member is a representative of a member company that regularly attends meetings, and accepts and performs work assignments as assigned by the chairperson. Only active members will be considered in determining a quorum and have a vote on committee activities.
Committee meetings are either held face-to-face or via web conferencing. Face-to-face meetings are generally held over the course of two days at an easily accessible location or a member’s facility. Web conferences are generally two hours long and usually start at either 10:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. Eastern time.
