Committee Chairs

There is no better way to extract value from your SMPSNEO membership than to join a committee, get involved and build relationships with chapter leadership. There is no shortage of ways to get involved, whether you have limited time to volunteer or hope to join the Board someday, there is a role that will be a fit for you!

For more information on our committees and how you can get involved, please contact Rachel Rauscher at rrauscher@moodynolan.com

'Volunteering has afforded me THE OPPORTUNITY to develop great relationships with the other board and committee members, and truly interact with all our members. Volunteering has also opened new avenues for my firm within the region. The possibilities within this organization are endless.' - Dave Essyen, Past Membership Chair
