Become a Board Member
The 2017/2018 Board will serve until May 31, 2018. Share your talents with the club.
We have been very fortunate to have a solid group of women who continue to serve on the board along with some new faces beginning in the current fiscal year. Although most of the positions have been filled for 2017/2018, we encourage our members to contact the board if interested in serving in the future. We like to give members the opportunity to shadow or assist the more experienced members so our year-to-year transitions are smooth.
We intentionally created lots of board positions to split up duties to keep the work manageable for busy women. If you would like to get involved, contact Sandra Daniel for more information. She can put you in touch with current board members to find out the best way for you to participate in the running of the club.
