Join a Committee

If you’d like to become more involved with SDIPN, consider participating in one of our committees. You may sign up for as many as you like (just don’t overextend yourself).

To qualify for committee membership, you must agree to become an active member: attend a minimum of two meetings (including conference calls) or SDIPN sponsored events, and agree with our Points of Unity.

Each committee of 3 or more members is responsible for organizing itself, with the requirement that a Chair must be elected. Committee chairs serve as members of the Steering Committee. If a committee consists of less than 3 members, those members will serve on the SC until such time as new committee members join.
