The Club’s success is largely dependent upon the member’s understanding, support and participation in committee activities and fundraising events. All members are encouraged to serve on at least one committee. Following is a brief review of our committees and their primary functions. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Charitable Endeavors: The Committee distributes funds raised by the Ways & Means Committee to selected charities. Members are encouraged to participate in various activities sponsored by the charities and as well as to support their fundraising efforts.
Finance: Members will be asked to occasionally staff the registration table at the Heathrow Women’s Club Luncheon.
Focus: The Focus committee works at the behest if the Board. It’s main focus is to assure that our by-laws and Policies and Procedures reflect the way we do business in the club and are followed as outlined. The committee also is responsible for conducting our annual satisfaction survey as well as keeping updated records of job descriptions for the Executive Board and Standing Committee Chairs. Also maintains the club archives.
