We’re looking for volunteers to be an HUWIB Alumni City Rep in New York, LA, Washington DC, San Francisco, and Boston. What is a City Rep? City Reps help us access and maintain our HUWIB Alumni Network in major cities.

It’s a great way to stay involved with the HUWIB organization without being a taxing commitment on your busy life. Okay I’m interested – now what? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with an indication of your interest. What if I don’t see my city? If you’d like to start a City Reps program in your city, let us know – we’re always open to expanding the program where there is demand.
