The Chapter's key asset is the membership. All members are encourage to participate in any way they are able in terms of time and/or resources. The various Committees provide a forum where you can you work with people who share a common interest. The programs and events that happen throughout the year are all made possible by your volunteer efforts. There are many ways you can help out. Maybe it's as simple as helping to setup chairs for an event. Or, you might have some ideas for programs and activities that all the membership will benefit from. In either case working with one of the Committees is the best way to take an active role in your Chapter.
