How much time will I need to commit to?

As much or as little time as you can give. Any level of interest and time you have is appreciated, we don’t have a time commitment requirement. We have monthly meetings, newsletters, social media and our website that can also offer you the information you need to stay involved.


Is there a cost to join or be active in this coalition?
