Non-Executive Roles

This part of the PSC can change from year to year. There’s wiggle room for new ideas in all of these roles: new fundraising ventures, new community-building events, whole new committees for new ideas (there’s talk of developing a STEM committee…). Maybe you have a suggestion? Bring it to the PSC meeting tomorrow!
