Committees

Joining a committee is a great way to build your leadership skills while making some great friends. The biggest regret that most of our members have is that they didn’t join a committee sooner. No prior experience is necessary, just a genuine interest in the committee and the willingness to work hard. Being a part of a committee also allows you to work with a great group of members to help the club.

You can apply to be on a committee at any time, just talk to an officer or the committee chair at any meeting.
