How Does SOCM Work?
SOCM is a member-run organization. This means that members make the decisions for the organization’s direction, policies, and campaigns. Members receive several benefits when they choose to become a part of SOCM, but also take on the responsibilities of membership. SOCM is governed by its Board of Directors, which are made up of representatives from each chapter and committee, as well as three at-large delegates. Members have the opportunity to elect these representatives every year at the SOCM Annual Meeting. The staff of SOCM serves to carry out the directives of the Board, and helps to organize its membership.
