Now is the perfect time to get involved and get more out of your membership than you ever imagined. We are looking for some fabulous professionals to be a part of advancing our growth. Are you looking for an easy way to expand your network, open doors and advance your career? Joining one of our committees is a simple way to do all of those things at once. As a committee member, you get access to some pretty great opportunities, including access to local & national educational opportunities, travel and development scholarships, fun team building opportunties and so much more. Email us now for more information, or come see us at one of the monthly meetings.


We are looking for support in the following areas:


Membership Committee
Instantly expand your network and get acquainted with many of the amazing individuals in our industry. As a member of the Membership Committee, you will work with the 2nd VP and the Membership Chair to maintain our relationship with our members and our community, as well as contribute to developing valuable member benefit programs. 


Programs Committee
Let your creative side soar and join us in developing all of the amazing educational and social programs we execute each month. It's fun and rewarding collaboration where you will get the chance to provide your input on the programs, topics and themes for our monthly events. Get to know vendors, venues and caterers and expand your network while being a part of a damn fun team.


Communications Committee
Fun, informative, quirky and engaging - just a few of the ways we like to craft our content and communication to our members. Are you a social media mastermind, or do you want to grow that skillset? Do you enjoy telling a good story or crafting engaging emails? You are exactly who we need to work with our Secretary to develop all of the amazing content that is delivered to our followers. 


Finance Committee
It's not all bean counting, people!! Not only do you get to work with the fabulous Monica Newby, but you also get to do some really thoughtful work in regards to governance and donations. In addition, you will get to know your fellow members better by occasionally helping out at the registration/welcome desk. Grow your network, develop your business acumen and have some fun.
