Chapter Committees

Members that are involved in committees often say that they receive more ROI from their involvement than those who are not involved.  Our chapter highly encourages all members to sign up for at least one committee.  Often the time commitment to belong to a committee is far less than perceived.  Meetings are held as determined by the Committee Chair on an as-needed basis. Please click on the name of the Board Liaison or Chair to email the committee and get involved!  If the position you’re interested in is vacant please email  We look forward to working with you!
