Club Leadership

Our club is led by a group of volunteer members, who dedicate a lot of their personal time to help keep our club motivated, educated and vibrant.

The path to leadership is though selfless service and learning and managing our different chair positions. Board members help manage our regular community service events, while coming up with new and creative fundraising efforts to fuel our many community initiatives.

Each week they keep our club stocked with fresh programing, while exploring and developing new paths in service.
