Club Leaders Needed!
Want to make a difference with your or your skater’s club? Looking to learn new or broaden your job skills as an active volunteer? Each year the Nominating Committee searches for leaders from our primary home membership to continue our mission of supporting skaters of all levels, and offering a warm and friendly atmosphere for skaters and their families.

In addition to having a positive attitude and being a team player, highly desired skills include small business management/accounting, digital publications, music technician, social event planning, fundraising, officiating and more!
