Committees & Clubs

SAR's various committees, clubs, and programs serve our Members and the community by overseeing issues and interests pertinent to our members.

Each program gives back to the community and identifies potential SAR and community partnerships. These partnerships enhance networking opportunities and facilitate key member activities.
Committee terms begin in January and end in December. Applications to join a committee are available beginning in September.
If you wish to join a committee after the deadline you may submit an application and you will be added to a waiting list.
