What do we expect of members?
All members must agree to devote some of their time to the success of the group. We ask that you either sit on a board position or sit on the Events Committee (or both!).
Obviously, the active participation of our members is what determines the level of greatness of CMH. We are all busy homeschooling parents, often first time homeschoolers, and sometimes new to the area or going through a deployment, this group is designed to be a support and blessing so the commitment levels are designed to take that into consideration.
Below is a list of the currently open board positions and their job descriptions. (We have also included a brief description of what the Events Committee does.) We have provided an estimated amount of time each position has devoted in the past to help aid you in choosing where to share your talents and gifts.
