Call for Volunteers for CMS — The Colorado Mycological
Society depends on volunteers from the membership to deliver its
services to the general membership. Many, if not most, of the volunteer
positions do not require extensive knowledge of mycology. What
they do require is enthusiasm and a willingness to
devote a few hours each month to the position.
Although most of
the committees currently have chairpersons assigned to them, there
are still a few that require a chairperson. If you would like to
volunteer for one of these "open" committee positions,
contact Karen Ryan by phone at 303-355-5966 or
If you would like to serve on a committee that is currently chaired
or obtain more information about the activities of the committee,
contact the chairperson directly.
