Countdown to June elections!








Calling all Carolina members: it’s that time of year again when we’re gearing up for chapter elections. We’re looking for a few people to join our team for the 2020-2021 year. We had a banner year this past year, and of course are hoping to continue our success. However, we also recognize that 2020 has been a year of, well, challenges, to put it mildly.

I invite you to tune in to the following video, where I briefly introduce why I would love to have you volunteer for the chapter and what you can expect in the year ahead. Then, please review the available positions and schedule a 1-on-1 with me to learn more about volunteering for the chapter. Thank you for your consideration, and stay safe everyone!

Review the following Admin Council positions we’re looking for volunteers, as well as some one-time opportunities if you can’t commit to a recurring role. For more detailed information about positions and how the council operates, check out the slides on the Volunteer page.
