PROGRAMS COMMITTEE ~ VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES
The Program Committee curates and streamlines the programming efforts related to social enterprise in the San Francisco Bay Area. The committee curates and generates content in 3 areas: collaboration, supporting and promoting emerging Social Entrepreneurs, and highlighting innovation and best practices in Social Enterprise. SEA/SFBay programs give leaders across sectors an opportunity to share and learn perspectives with one another.

o Access to broad and engaged network - sector-specific, or SE-related.
