Board and Committees

Board of Directors & Wildfire Committees

Wildfire Networking works well for its members because of the level of organization evident in every aspect of our group. From the Board of Directors to Committee Chairs to members, tasks flow smoothly because of our sensible organizational strategy.

Wildfire also offers members a chance to become part of the organization by joining various committees and working within the group to accomplish their goals. We know that everyone has different strengths and we want you, as a member, to utilize those strengths within our organization as well as develop new skills by becoming involved in committee work.

Committees

Committees are the lifeblood of our organizational system. Everyone has a chance to be a member of a committee and to sharpen his or her own leadership skills by working with other Wildfire Members in a common cause.

Members have opportunities to serve on many different committees covering a wide range of abilities and interests. These committees offer our group members opportunities to become involved in many different areas of the organization and to utilize different types of skills. These committees also keep our organization running smoothly and benefit all of our members.

For example, the After-Hours Committee directs social events such as mixers. Members of this committee play an important role in the social life of the group. The Awards Committee creates and administers various member awards and tracks eligibility of members for these awards. The Concierge Committee appoints and trains greeters for weekly meetings, and the Ethics Committee maintains and enforces all ethics standards for the group. There are Committees for Mentors, Members-at-Large and many other member categories. As you can see, there are committees for almost every task imaginable to keep the group functioning smoothly, and as a member you can be part of this important process.

At Wildfire Networking, it is easy to become involved at every level of the group's organization. Come join us and improve your leadership skills while you enjoy networking with colleagues in every type of business!
