U.S. Figure Skating is comprised of 26 permanent committees, organized into five committee groups.  Each committee has a specific role to play in supporting the organization is carrying out its mission. The responsibilities of each committee, by group, are detailed in the U.S. Figure Skating Committee Handbook.

The committees oversee, interpret and adjust rules under their jurisdiction to ensure that their part of the sport is relevant, current and in support of where we want to go.  Committees evaluate, develop and implement programs to support members in their areas. Committees partner with staff liaisons and assigned departments at U.S. Figure Skating headquarters to ensure that their mission, programs, roles, etc., are carried out effectively throughout the organization.

Committee chairs are responsible for thoroughly understanding their area, understanding the Strategic Plan, and leading their members in supporting these areas.  Each committee is represented by a Group Coordinator on the Board of Directors.
