Get Involved: Become a City Rep for HUWIB

We’re looking for volunteers to be an HUWIB Alumni City Rep in New York, LA, Washington DC, San Francisco, and Boston. What is a City Rep? City Reps help us access and maintain our HUWIB Alumni Network in major cities. The responsibilities are very manageable: help us spread the word about relevant events, plan 3-4 low-key networking events per year, and provide feedback to the board about what you and other HUWIB Alumni would like to see from the Board! It’s a great way to stay involved with the HUWIB organization without being a taxing commitment on your busy life. Okay I’m interested – now what? Please email mcszpak@gmail.com with an indication of your interest. What if I don’t see my city?  If you’d like to start a City Reps program in your city, let us know – we’re always open to expanding the program where there is demand.
