We typically look for 2-3 young professional board members (20-39 years old) and 6-7 "seasoned" Catholic board members (40+ years old).
What is a board member’s time commitment?Board members are asked to commit approximately 1 hour per week, attend board meetings (once a quarter), attend some chapter events, and encourage chapter leaders to serve with integrity and ambition.
What is a chapter board member's term?Per your chapter's board bylaws board members are asked to commit to a two (2) year term, after which you may reapply and serve for an additional 2 terms.
