How do I get Involved In MVCC?Posted on 12/14/16
MVCC relies on the contributions and involvement of individual members of our community. Wondering how to get involved? Come to a meeting...join a committee...volunteer for something.
Any MVCC stakeholder who attends any MVCC committee is by definition a voting member of that committee, so you can immediately make a difference in our community! In addition to originating and vetting policy motions for the Board of Directors, our committees perform many other community services.
