Committee Spotlight: Volunteer Development
Getting involved with a committee is a great way to engage with Women United and get to know some of our members better! We often hear the question: What do our committees do? Each newsletter, we'll take a deeper dive.

The Volunteer Development Committee helps to brainstorm and plan our 3-4 annual volunteer events, including Day of Action. Connect with local nonprofits in need, and give back by connecting Women United members with an opportunity to make an impact through their time.

Interested in getting involved? Email Committee Chair Mary Thomas.

Get involved!
