Committee Chair positions for 2019-2020

As the school year is closing in upon us so quickly, preparations for choosing next year’s committee chairs will soon be underway. Once the new board is elected, they will be able to appoint the committee chairs for the new season. If you are a current committee chairperson and would be willing to continue on, please email and let Angie know. If you are a current chair who is in their last year but have someone you think would be great to step in, please let us know! If you are interested in serving as a chair for a committee, also email Angie and let her know what position you may be interested in. The committees are as follows: 
* Service Crew 
* Hospitality 
* Chaperones 
* 50/50 raffle 
* Publicity 
* Uniforms 
* Website 
* Scholarship 
Please note – I listed all committees here. I specifically know that my Chaperone and Uniforms committee chairs are vacant. There has been some interest expressed for these positions and people that have been referred to us by the current chair but there is still time to let us know you are interested as well, so that information can be relayed to the board for 2019-2020. The rest of the committees have chairs that do not have graduating Seniors, but again if you are interested let us know. Even if you are interested in a chair position and may not be appointed to it, it’s great to know because it lends us to a back-up should any emergency arise and it helps us to prepare for future years as well.
