Study Topics/ Projects

There are four study topic areas supervised by Topic Chairmen appointed by the Technical Committee. The Topic Chairmen automatically become members of the Bureau in an ex-officio capacity. The tasks under each Topic Area have been divided into specific projects and each project is led by a Project Manager. The Project Managers act as Rapporteurs and seek input from experts within the ABU membership and if necessary, from outside.
