Joining one of our committees is a fantastic way to deepen your engagement and contribute to our chapter. Here are some reasons to consider volunteering:

  1. Impact: By joining a committee, you become an active participant in shaping our organization’s direction. Your contributions can directly impact decisions, initiatives, and further advance our mission and outcomes.
  2. Collaboration and Networking: Committees provide a platform to collaborate with like-minded individuals who share their interests. You’ll have the chance to network, exchange ideas, and foster a supportive and inclusive environment.
  3. Skill Development: Committee involvement allows you to hone your skills in specific areas. Whether it’s event planning, communication, finance, or project management, you’ll gain valuable experience.
  4. Leadership Opportunities: Serving on a committee provides a stepping stone for leadership roles within the Board. It’s a chance to demonstrate your commitment and capabilities.

Each committee has its unique focus—whether it’s organizing events, enriching our member experience, supporting new coaches on their path to certification, or marketing our brand in the business community—you will be contributing to the greater good.
