Getting Involved
posted November 11, 2010

During my tenure as Membership Chairman, I've learned that a too-large percentage of our members fail to get involved for one reason or another. Among those reason, I suspect, are not being sure how and being a little too shy to ask. For the benefit of our "rookies" and "veterans" I've begun to compile a list of different ways to get involved. Some require a committment. Some are laughably easy. All are important to the Council.

If you are looking for a way to get integrated at EDW, please REVIEW THIS LIST. The list is by no means comprehensive -- so if you know of something I've neglected, please let me know and I'll continue to add to it.
