Volunteer
Your chapter is a volunteer-run organization. Volunteers serve on the board to plan and hold many events throughout the year, but it takes many volunteers behind the scenes to make our chapter a success. The Tucson Chapter welcomes volunteers to  work with board members, plan and manage events and assist tournament directors on competition days. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Theresa Riel at triel65@gmail.com
