    Be Involved

    WES is governed by a Board of Managers that changes annually. Current officers and board members are listed in the most recent annual report (PDF).

    Every WES member has many opportunities to get to know WES Scholars. WES hosts social events, fundraisers, and campus activities. Additionally, members may choose to serve as Members-at-Large on standing or ad hoc committees with the exception of the Finance and Executive Committee.

    WES committees include:
    •    Scholarship
    •    Finance
    •    Fundraising/Project
    •    Future Planning (ad hoc)
    •    Membership
    •    Nominating
    •    Program
    •    Publicity

    The Scholarship Committee mentors new and current scholars, supports scholar teas and picnics, and joins the Board in assembling and delivering scholar “care packages.”

    Email WES@ColoradoCollege.edu and indicate your interest in serving on one or more committees or note it with your membership dues check.
