Get Involved

The best way to make the most of your membership is to get involved. 

Find out about opportunities by checking out the California Peninsula chapter events calendar, by connecting with us on social media, and volunteering on a chapter committee.

All Members can get involved by volunteering

Volunteers are an integral part of our chapter. We often need volunteers at our chapter meetings and special events. Spend an hour helping at an event or a few evenings planning one.
There are always opportunities for members to help on an on-going basis through committees or special projects and now through our Chapter initiatives.

Email our chapter administrator if you would like to volunteer for one of our committees or chapter initiatives.
