ADVISORY COUNCIL & GROUPS

 

USOPC and USAB Athletes' Advisory Council

The USA Badminton Athletes’ Advisory Council (AAC) is responsible for broadening communication between USA Badminton and active athletes. The AAC serves as a source of input and advice for the USA Badminton office and Board of Directors.

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


The seven-member council comprises 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 and procedures to conduct the elections for athletes wanting to run for the USAB AAC.
