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 7th year and serves to provide input and advice to the AmLight PI and the Steering Committee on program and network needs.
