Board of Directors

Tulsa Chapter Board of Directors

Serving on AWC’s Board of Directors is one of the most exciting and valuable leadership opportunities offered by membership. The Tulsa Chapter includes 26 leadership positions filled by dedicated members who meet monthly to set the chapter’s direction and policies. In addition, these board members lead the committees that deal with all areas of the chapter’s business ranging from membership to programs to public relations.

Volunteers with a variety of skills and experience are needed. The presidency usually requires a four-year commitment: at least one year in one of the board positions followed by a year each as president-elect, president and past president.

Board members are happy to answer questions about their committees or about AWC. You can reach them via email by simply clicking on the appropriate name. The board member holds their elected position at the start of the new fiscal year on July 1.
