Chai Seeks New Board and Committee Members

We are seeking people passionate about performing arts, community development, youth initiatives and general management to join our Board of Directors. As well, there are a variety of openings on committees, including alumni, revenue development, finance, grants and archives. Volunteers need not have a history with Chai. We are looking to complement our Board with new volunteers who bring fresh ideas, enthusiasm, skills and a sincere passion for what Chai means to the community. If you are interested in joining the Chai team, please contact us at 204-477-7497.
