Participation in a number of committees is required of all members of SAS. We have a wide range of activites giving everyone an ample amount of opportunities to particpate. We also encourage members to come up with their own ideas for committees; you do not have to be on the board to chair a committee. Being involved helps in so many ways from expanding your network, to having something to talk about during interviews, to serving the community, and just having fun. So be more than a "seat-warmer" and join a committee today!

You do not have to be any good at golf to participate. This is just intended to be a fun, social event where members can talk with real-world professionals. There is a seperate fee for this event.
