          ABOUT THE STATE ASSOCIATION ADVISORY COUNCIL

          The State Association Advisory Council (SAAC) serves as a liaison between State Associations, Board of Trustees and National Staff of Business Professionals of America. The Council promotes the Mission, Vision, and goals of the national organization and provides input to the BPA Board of Trustees and National Staff regarding national programs and activities affecting State Associations.

          The State Association Advisory Council collaborates with BPA's Classroom Education Advisory Council as well as other support groups and special committees to improve programs. In addition, members of SAAC support and facilitate the implementation of programs, policies and activities as established by the Board of Trustees of Business Professionals of America.

          The membership of SAAC consists of one Secondary, one Post-secondary, and one Middle Level representative from each affiliated state.
