    SAR Committees

    Volunteers who serve on boards and committees are the lifeblood of the national Society. They assist the SAR in policy making, assure the success of programming, reduce costs through their tireless work, and help to provide services to our members and the community.

    The SAR values each and every member, but those who show their passion and commitment to the SAR through their volunteering efforts stand out among the crowd.

    If you would like to serve on a national committee, please look for your area of interest and contact the chairman of that committee.
