  1. To bring ideas to the group on ways to celebrate and promote the mission and programs while raising monies for CJT
  2. Be responsible for the overall planning and the actions/tasks to hold events. This would include everything from determining budget, venue, promotion, sponsors, etc.

Our past and current events: online Trivia events and a program/presentation and reception with a like-minded organization (i.e., university).

Time Commitment: One hour monthly Zoom meetings, and any time that you can afford to assist with planning and participating in CJT events (typically 4 to 6 times a year).

If interested, please contact us.
