San Francisco Chapter
A blog for and by a community of professionals
The chapter’s Nominating Committee will be considering candidates to serve on the chapter board for a two-year fiscal year term (May 1, 2015–April 30, 2017).
Board members and officers have the opportunity to be leaders of the profession promoting chapter activity and growth. They’re expected to attend board meetings and chapter events, including a planning conference in early May. Board meetings are held nine times a year for one-two hours. Each board member serves as a liaison to chapter committees and is encouraged to participate in planning committees for events such as the ABC Fundraising Mixer, Managing Partners Breakfast and Golf Tournament. Board members and officers receive no compensation or reimbursement for these activities. The experience you will receive is priceless.
Committee chair positions also are available for those interested in organizing technical committee meetings for CPE. The term is for one fiscal year and has no term limits. Interest groups include litigation, nonprofit and more. See the full listing online.
