Committee Involvement

HYPE’s committees develop most of the programs and activities that HYPE hosts throughout the year with each committee managing a major programming theme and/or activity defined by our strategic plan.

These committees have always been a place for innovative ideas, energy and flexibility within the framework of the strategic plan. We want to utilize our members’ skills, interests, talents and contacts to help us move forward.

Committees perform their work through a mix of in-person meetings, conference calls and virtual work through Basecamp, our project management tool.
