Get involved!

Your leadership team in CMEA-SES continues to search for new and better ways to serve our members. We are always interested in hearing your ideas for events you would like to see provided. We are also always looking for interested volunteers who want to help run our section in any capacity.  If you are interested in volunteering as a candidate for office, a particular representative, or a site host for one of our events, please let us know.
