I am interested in serving on a committee!
Please check the committees of interest below. please note, committee service entails participation in regular meetings, as well as projects in between meetings.

The Membership Committee strives to achieve two goals: to recruit and retain WiD members and to enhance the value of WiD membership. The Membership Committee assures that there is a variety of program offerings to address the interest of our diverse membership. We are looking for friendly, outgoing committee members who are willing to connect to WiD members at each program to welcome them and serve as a resource. We would also like to personally reach out to those whose membership is about to lapse. Volunteers are expected to attend as many of WiD’s programs and events as possible and to devote 1 – 3 hours per month.
