Volunteering as member of Planning Committee
Education program for the upcoming fiscal year is planned in the spring with the Planning Committee and the Executive Board. For each meeting, two members volunteer to plan and coordinate. Consider volunteering as a member of the Planning Committee, or helping this committee with various small tasks, such as registration desk, organize and/or procure refreshments or just sharing some ideas. Everyone is welcome to attend the Planning Committee Meeting in the spring just to find out what goes on behind the scenes. Keep in mind that part of team work; many hands make light work. Many of these positions can be shared with a friend or colleague. Please feel free to speak to any of the Executive Board Members.
