Councils are volunteer groups within the AAEP with a specific charge to provide guidance to the AAEP leadership. Councils may recommend the formation of task forces, member education, position statement development, motions for the board of directors, or other courses of action on a particular issue related to their subject area.

Committees are volunteer work groups within the AAEP which have an ongoing, annual function and a focused charge related to a specific area of veterinary medicine, the equine industry or association governance. Policies and procedures relative to committees (e.g. appointment, terms, eligibility, etc.) are further defined in the AAEP Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.
