While board positions are elected, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer and make a difference, without having to run for office! In February, the board built their annual plan for 2009 at a full-day Strategic Retreat. In order to fulfill our goals, we have several committees that will need your help. Hopefully, something will be of interest to you that's listed below.
