Leadership Committee(LC): 
LC members are part of the leadership team and are active in the chapter. They attend meetings and/or contribute their time and talent to planning events and activities. LC members are expected to contribute to at least two YWTF:DC events during each board term. They will be able to work closely with the Board of Directors on specific projects without the time commitment a board position requires. The goal of the LC is to provide leadership opportunities for members and to act in an advisor capacity to the board of directors.

Running for a Leadership PositionInformal elections are held each spring (May-June).  Candidates are required to have participated in at least 1 activity with YWTF: DC and newcomers are welcome.  Each candidate must submit a letter of intent (via e-mail) to the Chapter Director stating which position(s) she is running for and why.

Annual Leadership Retreat: Each summer YWTF:DC leadership past and present and Leadership Committee members come together for a two day retreat in the Shenandoah Valley region of VA to celebrate the year that was, share ideas and officially transition to the new board term.
