  • NANOS 2022-2024 Organizational Arm Chart. This document provides a high-level overview of the structure of NANOS. 
  • NANOS Committee Purposes. This document highlights the charge of each of NANOS’s 40 committees and taskforces. 
  • NANOS Committee Tasks. (login required) This document clearly outlines the tasks of each committee, how they align with the strategic goals of the organization, and which other NANOS committee(s) you may consult with. 
  • NANOS Listserv Rules & Terms.
  • NANOS Avoidance of Anticompetitive Behavior Guidelines.
  • Intercommittee Liaisons clarification: Because NANOS Committees often have tasks that are either dependent upon another Committee's work, or because their tasks are closely related, or in some cases, because one committee produces a work product and another disseminates it (i.e., the Social Media Committee), NANOS often appoints “Intercommittee Liaisons" who help strengthen communication and collaboration between NANOS committees. An Intercommittee Liaison is not expected to take an active role on the committee that they are appointed to liaise with, but rather are asked  to observe the activity and contribute to/advise on the discussion if it pertains to their "home" committee where they serve as a committee member or committee Chair/Co-Chair or Vice Chair. Intercommittee Liaisons are usually non-voting members of the committee they advise, unless indicated otherwise by the President. They are not expected to attend all committee meetings but are welcome to do so if they wish. They are also added to the committee listserv so that they can observe committee conversations and provide feedback when they deem necessary. NANOS Arm Officers also act as committee liaisons.

For Committee Members, each term is 2 years with a maximum of 3 terms.
For Committee Chairs, each term is 2 years with a maximum of 3 terms.
The President & Executive Vice President are Ex-Officio members of all Committees.
