    Being a chair is a great way to earn your leadership credit and have influence over the chapter without having as much of a time commitment as an officer. Want to improve our professional development for students interested in graduate school? Interact with company representatives? Design the next t-shirt or get more TBP swag? Then we have a chair position for you!

    If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me or any of the officers!

    Apply here if you are interested.
