HDI Steel City Launches Leadership Council

With a growing chapter of support professionals, the HDI Steel City has created a new way for its active members to share their passion and give back to the community. The Steel City Leadership Council is open to all professionals who attend the monthly chapter meetings. The HDI Steel City chapter meets monthly from September through June for professional networking and development. Supported by numerous sponsors and HDI membership dues, the chapter offers educational presentations, site tours, and discussion groups on leading trends and topics within the service management industry.

Board of Officers

The chapter is led by volunteers elected by the membership to two-year positions. This board is responsible for the business of running the chapter, producing programs, and delivering valued services for our community.

Leadership Council

Ideal for those who want to support the local chapter but cannot commit to the responsibilities of the officer roles. Membership is voluntary and open to any professional who actively participates in the monthly membership meetings.

  • Submit ideas and articles for the chapter newsletter and website.
  • May volunteer for board sponsored committees, such as the annual awards program.
