Have you ever thought about being a chapter leader?We have many committees from which you can choose to begin your journey as a chapter leader. Please contact any of us if you think chapter leadership could be in your future.
We also want to know what you would like to know about membership, future plans, etc. The chapter leadership are here to serve our members, and we want all Alpha members to have a great experience. So please help us by sharing your thoughts. I would be happy to have these come to me firstname.lastname@example.org for me to share with everyone else.
