Next Generation Leaders

Chairmen’s Advisory Council

The Chairmen’s Advisory Council (CAC) was founded in 2007 as a Board Development Committee with the goals of growing the base of support for Big Shoulders Fund and increasing the connection and involvement of prospective future Big Shoulders Fund Board members. Today, along with the Auxiliary Board of young professionals, it comprises the “Next Generation” of leaders who will guide the Big Shoulders Fund into the future.

The Chairmen’s Advisory Council moves the needle through volunteerism in schools and on committees, outreach to the community and their networks, fundraising and more. The CAC is a way to make an impact, network, and lead.
