Committees

To truly get the most out of your membership with BMA Chicago, join a committee. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our chapter. There are 4 different committees that work year-round and are responsible for different aspects of the organization’s success. Every committee has a board chair (with one or more sub-committees), who supervises the group, manages the budget and ensures that everything runs smoothly.  Each committee has many different positions and subcommittees within it that report to the chair. 

Email a committee chair and volunteer. You’ll help BMA Chicago and maximize your networking at the same time. You must be a current BMA member to join a committee.
