South American Astronomy Coordination Committee (SAACC) is comprised of representatives from the various astronomy projects who are conducting projects or operating observatories in South America.
The SAACC is now in its 11th year and serves to provide input and advice to the AmLight PI and the Steering Committee on program and network needs. In addition to that, it also serves as a venue for coordinating the needs of these astronomical projects and institutions to improve their resource planning and implementation of operational connections between these distant facilities and users in the continental US and Latin-American Countries.
