Executive Board is just one key factor to keep any Chapter Running Smoothly
Just like any other group out there, there is a committee that helps keep the operations running smoothly. This Executive Board does just that with various job descriptions tagged onto them. They are involved with Chapter in almost every way possible, and are still Chapter members themselves. There is a new Executive Board elected each year, in order to help others gain advanced skills in leadership, friendship, and service.
The new E-board was elected on April 7th, 2014 and will be sworn in on April 21st, 2014.
