Secretary for Northern Alameda County Group

The Group meets the fourth Monday of each month from 7 until around 9:30 pm at the Chapter Office in Berkeley to help take positions on local and regional issues. The secretary records the minutes to help us stay organized and is always encouraged to contribute input on the positions we take. You need to be able to type and send the minutes via e-mail. A laptop can be provided for you. This is a challenging yet very rewarding opportunity. To volunteer, contact Group chair Olga Bolotina at (510)910-4733 or obolotina@presidiomba.org
