MEMBER SERVICES

Volunteers Wanted!
 
Volunteers for the Member Services team are needed!  It's a great way to meet other members and to get more involved in your Chapter! We need "Chapter Ambassadors" at the various events to welcome newer members.  If you are going to a golf or social event, you will be provided with a list of the newer members who are also attending. Our "Ambassadors" seek out these newer members and just say "hi, welcome to the chapter!"  It's your chance to provide a welcoming face to a sometimes overwhelming "first time experience"!
