The Board of Managers, composed of the Chapter Officers, Managers-at-Large, and other ex-officio members, is assisted in the pursuit of national, state, and local SAR objectives and initiatives, as well as in the conduct of Chapter business, by both standing and special committees. Unless specified in the Chapter Bylaws, the Chapter President appoints the chairmen of the Standing Committees on an annual basis. Special Committees are typically appointed to meet a short-term need and are normally constituted for a short, specified duration.

For questions about a Committee, and for members to volunteer their services, please contact the Committee chair or the Chapter Secretary at
