Your local chapter will also develop a comprehensive program of work that will help you develop business and marketing, social, leadership, and teamwork skills and raise money for causes and charities. By providing multiple social and leadership activities including electing local officers, developing committees for activities, interacting with business people and participating in district events, local chapters help make sure you reach your goals for the future.
