Call for Volunteers

In addition to chapter board officers, we have many volunteer opportunities.  For example, we could use additional assistance with activities such as recruiting presenters for our monthly membership meetings, managing our social media channel(s), website maintenance, etc.  We will be advertising these opportunities soon. 

Have a wonderful day, my fellow Change Makers.
