 Boston CHAPTER COMMITTEES

The Boston Chapter is comprised of many individuals who dedicate their time and energy to making the Chapter the best that it can be.  The Chapter has formed several Committees to support the mission and goals of the Board of Directors and the work of the VPs.  The members of these Committees invest countless hours of volunteer time to continue to elevate the offers of Boston Chapter membership.  We are grateful for each and every volunteer’s time and support. 

Committees meet at the discretion and direction of the responsible VP, typically one time per month.  If you are interested in becoming involved with any one of our Committees, please contact the VP designated below, or any member of the Board of Directors.  We strongly encourage and appreciate your participation! 

  


 Member Relations Committee  

The Member Relations Committee provides a support system for our Members and encourages and promotes consistent participation within the Boston Chapter.  In addition to recruiting new members, our goal is for all Chapter Members to have ongoing, meaningful involvement in Chapter sponsored events so that they get the most out of their membership.  The Committee constantly looks for new ways to engage Chapter Members, reaches out to those who may be less involved, and coordinates event ideas with the other Chapter committees and the Board of Directors.
