“If selected as a chapter leader, I would listen to the members and see how we, the chapter leaders, can best serve The Society and add value to the membership. I will also research and seek out interesting and meaningful content and programming for the Chapter. Once these items are identified, I would put together a budget and a project execution plan, so that we may expeditiously actualize these projects. I would also focus on fundraising, to ensure ample resources for developing the projects.”
