Chapter Committees


The time commitments below are flexible and may be reduced or increased based on your availability and interest. We have broken some of the large tasks down to smaller tasks so that more of you may contribute to the chapter. Some tasks require a few hours of your time on a one time activity for the year or on a small task. Other tasks require more time commitment. So depending on how much you feel you can spare to help lead the chapter, please read the descriptions below and let us know where you'd like to help.
