There are some of OEATA’s committees:
1. All things Administrative:

- Ethics Sub-Committee develops the OEATA Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice in comopliance, with that of the CRPO, on an ongoing basis in response to shifts that inevitably will occur and disciplinary action.

2. Working together:
Membership Committee oversees and handles administrative tasks, including collecting and maintaining membership data, mailing lists, processing new and renewal memberships, and responding to communications regarding membership. The committee is also responsible for membership drives to attract new members and retain the present membership.

3. Making a splash in the larger world:
