Advisory & Board of Directors

Non-Board Members

We need new members to serve on committees (headed by a Director) and at our fundraising events, attend membership meetings as may be called by the Board of Directors (including the annual membership meeting in January), pay annual dues in January (although no dues are required until the first January), and participate in other HSFE functions.

To become part of HSFE, you must be nominated by a current member in good standing and then approved by the Board of Directors. If you do not know a current member, click on the link below and submit the form.
