The PASA Bylaws provide for three different types of committees.  PASA committees work under the direction of the Board of Governors and the Executive Committee.
Standing Statewide Committees
Three committees include a representative from each intermediate unit. I.U. representatives on the PASA Board of Governors serve as members of the Membership Committee. For the two remaining standing statewide committees, members are elected from within their respective regions. Members of the Board of Governors are responsible for conducting these elections as needed.

Legislativestudies and directs PASA positions on specific legislation consistent with the Association's Resolutions and any direction from the Board of Governors

Advocacy: annually drafts a Resolutions document that outlines general PASA positions on education issues, based on direction from the Board of Governors and from the general membership through regional meetings and discussions
Standing Operating Committees
Currently, PASA has four of these committees.  Each committee consists of nine members, appointed by the President to staggered three-year terms from among those submitting a written statement of interest in serving.
Elections: provides oversight of the election of PASA officers and Pennsylvania delegates to the AASA Governing Board, and is responsible for hearing and resolving any complaints or appeals regarding results of any PASA election
Professional Development: develops and evaluates an annual series of workshops covering important issues challenging public school administrators

Innovative Learning & Teaching: charged with developing programs and strategies that improve the knowledge and skills of PASA members in the use of technology and research to assist with advocacy and to enhance teaching and learning across the commonwealth
Ad Hoc Committees
Ad Hoc committees are appointed by the President as the need arises.  In making the appointments, the President gives due consideration to representation from geographical regions of the Association.  Ad Hoc committees may not usurp the functions of any standing committee named in the Bylaws.
