Committees

Volunteers are always needed for our chapter. Our members are very important when it comes to making the chapter run and to stay connected with everyone. If you are interested in volunteering your time and expertise, please consider the following opportunities and contact one of the chapter officers for more information.

Tell us what you would like to do and how much time you have (even if only a few hours), and we’ll help you find the right fit for you and our chapter’s needs.
