JGSPBC Committees

All organizations thrive through the efforts of volunteers. We are no different. The services available to our members are provided by a handful of dedicated people.

However, with an ever-growing membership topping 300 people, there is need for more Volunteers. There are many exciting and rewarding opportunities. Please view Committee opportunities and Chairpersons to contact. Join us in this rewarding opportunity.
