Our Committee Chairs are continually seeking the ideas and energy of members who are interested in making a contribution to our organization. Participating on a committee is a rewarding way to share your skills and knowledge in support of HLNDV, and build upon the generous time and effort given by our past leaders and committee volunteers. At the same time, the diverse range of activities and programs we deliver throughout the year provides unique exposure to new experiences, learning opportunities, as well as our broader membership.
