FOSAS seeks volunteers to become members of the Board of Directors, or to serve on Board committees in areas where you have special interest or talent. You do not have to be a member of the Board of Directors to serve on a committee, though the committee chair or at least one co-chair must be a voting member of the Board of Directors. Most committees meet 2–4 times per year, though during special projects a committee may meet more frequently.
