Please read the descriptions of the committees available for volunteering opportunities. Please add your name to the committee you would like to be involved with and identify any committee you are interested in chairing or serving as the co-chair.

The chair is responsible for scheduling and running the meetings, and ensuring monthly reports are delivered no later than 2 business days prior to our monthly meetings. Vice chairs will run the meeting in the absence of the Chair and typically write the committee reports, but that will be the choice of the committee. Region II will provide the call-in service information for the chairs to use to conduct the phone meetings. Volunteering for more than one committee is fine and encouraged. Please note many of our committees involve minimal time commitments each month.

I strongly encourage State and regional local chapter officers to assign one volunteer to serve on the Liaison/Steering committee to help provide information on regional activities to the chapters and to also hear about concerns and activities within our member states they can report back to our board.
