Athletes' Advisory Council

The Athletes’ Advisory Council is responsible for broadening communication between the United States Olympic Committee, including the U.S. Paralympics division, and active athletes, and serves as a source of input and advice to the USOC board of directors and the Paralympic Advisory Committee. Athlete representatives for the 2013-16 quadrennium were elected in December 2012.

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.
