These are our Work Teams.  Some have leaders and waiting for volunteers, others have volunteers who are waiting for leaders.  None of them are filled completely.
Our association is dedicated to helping every person in our family.  In order for anyone to get that help, we need to share information, resources and duties.  We should all add a little help, give a little time and share in the support.  If this is done we will secure our own success.  We will also leave a wonderful and proud legacy for generations to come.
Please review this list to see where you'd like to add your talents.  There are friendly and fun-loving people eager to meet you and have you to join their team.
