CWMA Meetings

Regional Committees serve as the gateway for getting new items on the national agenda to modify the United States standards for weights and measures.  They are also a forum for providing further development of these items and developing regional consensus.

The Interim Meeting, held each fall, is where the Standing Committees conduct open hearings for all carryover items from the NCWM and receive new items for consideration.  At the conclusion of open hearings, the standing committees develop recommendations to be forwarded to the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM).

At the CWMA Annual Meeting, held each spring, Standing Committees conduct open hearings, deliberate in work sessions where they prepare addendum sheets to their reports and present their reports for the voting session.  The purpose of the voting is to develop a regional position for each of the items on the NCWM agenda.
