Chapter Committees

Volunteer leadership is the core of our chapter’s strength. Building committees under every chair is the responsibility of each chairperson and supporting every committee chair is the responsibility of the chapter Board of Governors.

We, as a chapter, sustain our drive, ensure our continuity of effort, and protect our legacy by encouraging our members to get involved at the committee level. Broad participation breeds new ideas. We take the “many hands make light work” theory a step further as accomplishing chapter tasks with work parties turns “work” into something more like “parties.”

At the committee level, chairs who share responsibilities with committee members enjoy better retention among their ranks and build-in automatic contingency plans if any key committee members encounter outside issues in the short or long term.
