Administrative Council

The following positions on the Administrative Council are vacant. The links to the job descriptions go to the Administrative Council Roles page.

  • At-Large-Director The chapter's Bylaws allow two to three At-Large-Directors to be elected to the Administrative Council. This is a good position for those who want some experience learning about how to administrate the chapter and vote on issues before volunteering for other roles on the administrative council.

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.
