Annual Event Volunteer Needs

Perhaps you would like to be on a committee/team or just take one simple role or task. We welcome any and all involvement. Our hope is that we will not have meetings when we don't need to, or as few as possible. Minutes and documents will be emailed after each meeting to keep all of those who can't make meetings up to date. Even if you can't make the meetings, we want you involved!
