* All committees are in need of volunteers:
Volunteering is a great way to be of service and to give back to your community. If you are interested in being of service and joining one of our committees, speak with your GSR for information or go to cmainla.com and send a message to the chairman of the committee you would like to be a part of or join us at the next district meeting.
