Get involved and connect while using your valuable skills and perspective with SHFM. Volunteering on a committee means the opportunity to lead the future of the Society.
SHFM is always welcoming volunteers for any of the following committees:
Foundation Fundraising Committee
Provides guidance and resources to help create fundraising activities for the initiatives of the SHFM Foundation.
Approves and advises marketing initiatives and activities, attracts new members and retains current members through work on various projects and initiatives, including Social Media Ambassadors, website projects, membership projects and the marketing of the various SHFM events.
Recruits new members, represents and monitors the needs of the existing membership, and ensures a strong membership structure and benefits package. This committee also seeks to maintain current members through personal outreach to non-renewing members. Finally, this committee serves as ambassadors for SHFM membership throughout their everyday business activities through interaction with potential members.
SHFM Local Committees
Develops and sets the direction for all SHFM Local events by establishing a program for the event, as well as planning and executing successful events across the country. This set of committees represent the following SHFM Local markets: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, California (Bay Area), Texas (Dallas) and Washington, DC. New markets may be established if there is a group interested in creating an SHFM Local event in a new market. Contact Tony Butler at firstname.lastname@example.org should you be interested in this opportunity.
Develops and oversees SHFM research projects. This new mission for this committee is intended to provide the SHFM membership with resources such as white papers on various topics of interest to the membership.
