Athletes' Advisory Council

The Athletes’ Advisory Council is responsible for broadening communication between the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, including the U.S. Paralympics division, and active athletes, and serves as a source of input and advice to the USOPC board of directors and the Paralympic Advisory Committee.

The AAC consists of at least one athlete from each sport in which the United States is represented at the Olympic and Pan American Games, eight Paralympic athlete representatives — six from summer sports and two from winter sports, and six athletes elected by the AAC to serve at-large, including a chair and two vice chairs.
