Impact100 South Jersey is completely volunteer driven. Although members are only required to make their annual contribution, we encourage women who want to play a larger role to join one of the volunteer committees that carry out the work.
Members are vital to the success of Impact100 South Jersey. Committee members formulate strategies for new member recruitment, plan and staff member information and social events. This committee also connects with members to better understand their experiences with and ideas for Impact100 South Jersey.
