Committees

The CSDC is led by its members. There are many committee opportunities available to members who wish to help in specific areas. There are a number of permanent committees and task and/or event-specific committees. Task and/or event-specific committees require a shorter time commitment.

 

Please contact us if you are interested in participating on a committee.
