Councils

Each of our nearly 60 chapters are affiliated with one of  our four councils. The councils serve as the governing body for its member groups. Under the leadership of a group of members elected to serve as the executive board, each council hosts regular meetings to conduct the business of the council, promotes strong relationships and partnerships amongst their council and within the entire community, and works to better their council and membership experience through programming, education, and accountability.

For contact information for our council executive boards, please scroll to the bottom of this page.
