Committees

Getting involved is a key componet of your membership benefits!   

SLAA's working committees are designed to promote member involvement. Committees are the lifeblood of association. They are the vehicles by which organizations meet objectives and accomplish goals. Whether it’s maintaining bylaws or creating a program for your annual awards banquet, committees keep the lights on and the association moving forward. 

HERE ARE SLAA's WORKING COMMITTEES

COMMUNITY AWARENESS

This committee meets 4 - 6 times per year to plan and executie events. Each year, they plan our Food Drive, School Supply Drive, Holiday Social and Bowling Social. Outside of their planning meetings, they also gather to make sandwiches for St. Patrick’s Center a couple times per year, then are available sporadically throughout the year to help with pickup/drop off of materials, to deliver Hatching Hope boxes, etc.

FALL EXPO AND SEMINAR

Committee members plan and execute the annual trade show and educational seminar. The committee meets monthly, beginning in June to plan, build attendance and sell booths.

GOLF CLASSIC

The Product and Service Council, along with approximately 5 volunteers execute the tournament each year. Planning begins in June and continues as needed.

Volunteers for Golf Classic: 

For your planning purposes, the busiest time of the day at this event is from 7:30 am – 9:30 am.  Once the golfers leave the area to start play at 10:00 am, volunteer duties are complete.  Call Deb in the SLAA office (314.205.8844) to confirm help is still needed. 

Another great option for those of you that want to network with your colleagues that day, join us for dinner and awards at approximately 4:00 pm.
