Committees

Join an AWIS GCH committee!

Volunteering on a committee is an opportunity:

To gain new experiences and/or refine existing skills

To expand your networks and make important career contacts

To become more engaged with our chapter and our mission

AWIS GCH welcomes and appreciates any volunteers and has a variety of committees to align with your interests. We ask that volunteers be members.
