AXYS’s Board of Directors created four standing committees to oversee a number of key aspects of the business and affairs of AXYS. Their membership consists of a combination of Directors and persons who are not current directors. If you would like to be volunteer to serve on any of these committees or would like to contact AXYS about a topic coming under any of their respective duties, please contact us.
