Have you ever considered helping others with celiac disease? Are you interested in meeting others while providing service to the gluten-free community? One way to help is by joining one of our committees. These committees focus on specific goals, events or developing resources for our member families. We have committees focused on food insecurity, event planning, welcoming new families and more.
Anyone is welcome to serve on these committees.
The committees are:
Awareness and Advocacy – This group’s focus is to raise awareness and participate in advocacy for celiac disease and celiac research at the local, state and federal level. We meet the fourth Friday of the month at 3:30 pm
Communications/Social Media – This group’s focus is all of the ways we communicate such as newsletters, social media, website and more. We will ensure that those tools are working well for our group and our members. We meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm.
