We have a variety of ways for you to help our club and make an impact!  There are three major ways to help out.

  1. Club Officer – Express your interest in serving as a Club Officer by contacting the nominations committee.  Officers are expected to attending the monthly meeting, as well as, an executive committee meeting each month.
  2. Committee Chair – Serve on the Executive Committee as a Committee Chair.  Chairs are encouraged to attend or call into the executive committee meetings.  These positions are not as time intensive but are still vital to our club’s continued success.
  3. Committee Member – Serve as a Committee Member.  This will help our club take it to the next level!  Many hands make light work so this is a perfect position if want to help but cannot commit a large chunk of time.
