Committee Volunteers for the following:

We’re in need of a few volunteers that can help keep the Central Iowa Chapter moving forward. If you’ve ever enjoyed a monthly event or IBADD, and have a few hours a month to spare, this is a great opportunity to hone skills and give back to the community. CBAPs would be able to declare the time spent for CDUs.
