   GWPCA Programs

 All committees welcome new members who want to learn about different facets of club business and have time to devote to helping the club. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact the committee chair for information about what help is needed where. A few of the committees have minimum requirements for participation, so be sure to touch base with the chair to see how you can help.
