District Chairs

The District Chairs are the conduit between the local section Leadership and the Regional and Society level Directors. Their responsibilities include: building cohesiveness between the sections and districts, sharing best practices, communications up to the society and down to the sections.

If you are a Section officer with questions on policy, procedures or ideas on how to be more effective, your District Chair and vice-chair are your first-point of contact.
