ADVISORY COUNCIL & GROUPS

 

USOC and USAB Athletes' Advisory Council

According to USOC, the Athletes’ Advisory Council (AAC) is responsible for broadening communication between the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and active athletes. The AAC serves as a source of input and advice to the USOPC board of directors.

USAB is proud to have an AAC that consists of a diversity of athletes that represent the badminton community and its values. The USAB Athlete Advisory Council (AAC) is a six-member council that is comprised of volunteer athletes and elected by athletes. Think of this council as athlete representatives for all USAB athletes.

The six-member council is composed of at least one Paralympic Athlete representative, two United States Olympic Paralympic Council (USOPC) Athlete representatives and three additional USAB elected athletes. The USOPC athlete representatives and the USAB elected athletes each have their own eligibility requirements/procedures to conduct the elections for athletes wanting to run for the USAB AAC.
