Join a Committee

The MAG has a variety of opportunities for members to get involved by joining a committee. The primary function of a committee is to contribute to the efficient operation of the MAG. Committees are ongoing Merchant-Only groups that cover a broad range of topics aligned to MAG's strategic pillars. Highly strategic in nature, each committee is focused on approaching objectives from a macro level.

Committee participation is open to All Access merchant members only and meetings are held once a month or more often as needed.
