About CGI Committees

The CGI program comprises eleven self-governed and self-supported committees categorized into three focus areas: market, product, and processes. Their collective aim is to advance the utilization and comprehension of composites and composite materials across many diverse markets. These committees have multiple objectives and work diligently by conducting various activities tailored to each committee’s focus, encompassing education, marketing, standards development, outreach, and advocacy. Their primary mission is to facilitate the adoption of composites as alternatives to traditional materials. All committees represent the supply chain of material suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, consultants, and academics.
