CAB Agendas and Presentations

The Agenda is normally available 5 days prior to the CAB meting. If you would like to submit an Agenda Item or make a CAB Presentation, please contact our President at least 10 business days prior to the next CAB meeting date.

Our CAB Volunteers

Each year we elect our five Chapter Advisory Board (CAB) Officers. The elected offices are: President, 1VP, 2VP, Secretary and Treasurer. Their one year term begins the following Jan 1st and ends on Dec 31st of that year. Officers are limited to 4 terms in any one position. 

 

In addition to the elected board officers, we have appointed chairs and support staff. Some positions are critical and must be filled. They include our Membership Chair, Events Chair, Neighborhood Group Leaders and Editor. Other positions may vary from year to year reflecting our needs and available volunteers. 

 

Every member has unique talents that our Chapter can use.  Check out our Volunteer Page for openings and contact a CAB member if you can help. Although no one can deny that experience is helpful, we have found that the most important aspect is your willingness to help. You will be given the resources and training to make you feel like a winner in whatever you do!

Many of our Members have proudly served you as Volunteers. 

Please visit our Volunteer History Page to see who they are and when you see them, let them know you appreciate their past chapter service.
