Skills and Interest Form

Skills and Interests Form

Together, we can do a world of good.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our member skills and interest form. Please fill out the following questions - it should only take about 5 minutes! Afterwards click the submit button and that's it.


This form is a two-fold effort -

1.) Filling this out does not mean you are committing yourself to anything right now! Our goal is simply to understand your skills and interests so, in the future, we can offer you club service opportunities that you will find meaningful and rewarding!

2.) At times, our club may be called upon to participate in a community-wide effort and as club members we need to support our community. This form will allow us to reach out to those who may have experience or expertise in the needed area and offer an opportunity to both represent our club and to serve our community!

Thank you in advance for your time!
