The Sedona Women Committees
The Sedona Women make a difference through our many wonderful Committees. Committee work is fun and rewarding and you meet so many fabulous gals!
The Program Committee is ideal for women who are creative, inquisitive and fun loving. Its mission is to decide on nine or ten inspiring, thoughtful, interactive, informative and fun programs for the upcoming year. It is comprised of five to ten members including a Chair or Co-chairs.
The Social Committee makes arrangements for luncheons after the general meetings at a variety of local restaurants. In February, in lieu of a lunch at a restaurant, the committee plans 10 or so in-home lunches securing hostesses to open their homes for these intimate events.
The Membership Committee coordinates new, renewing and current members. The Committee is responsible for staffing the Membership Table at monthly meetings where information and forms are available for new members to join, returning members to renew their membership and guests to register for the meeting. The committee maintains files of current membership forms and coordinates with “Membee” (a membership management system). The Committee is responsible for training new and current members on how to access the directory. They provide reports on member information to the “TSW” Board. The committee provides information to Committee Chairs who have expressed interest in serving on their committees. Additionally, the Committee is responsible for overseeing and sending the Annual Membership Mailing in August of each year.
Community Service is an integral part of The Sedona Women's mission, and over the years this Committee has accomplished an impressive list of projects (please see the Community Service History page). We guide the organization toward its goal of “Making a Difference."

The Welcoming Committee is the first contact to greet members and guests at The Sedona Women monthly program meetings. What better way meet and get to know other fabulous members? Welcoming works closely with the Membership Committee to direct guests to register for the meeting and provide information to those wishing to join as a new member. We welcome attendees as they enter and we help everyone find their name badge or temporary guest tag. We order new badges as needed throughout the year.
The Communications Committee is responsible for getting information out to our members in a variety of ways including, e-mail, our website and via local publications. The job of informing members of meetings, events and special news items in a clear, positive and timely manner is absolutely vital to the organization and requires that this committee works very closely with each other and with all other committees and Board members.

The trip committee might possibly be the most fun of all the committees. It is responsible for selecting and organizing the two to three day trips and one day adventures. Committee members should have good computer skills, organizational skills, great people skills, negotiation skills, a willingness to go on the trips and a love for travel and adventure. If you possess one or more of these skills please consider joining our trips committee.
Chair: Shelby Kube
It’s important to keep our community informed of the remarkable work The Sedona Women engage in throughout the year. The Public Relations Committee works in close coordination with TSW committees such as Programs, Community Service and others to keep the public informed of upcoming events as well as past accomplishments through press releases and other media outreach. Media outlets may include SRRN, KUDOS, Chamber of Commerce, Verde Independent, local radio and more. The main focus for 2020 will of course be the promotion of our exciting and much anticipated 20th Anniversary Celebration! Is the public aware of the remarkable work we do as The Sedona Women? Help us spread the word!
The Sunshine Committee's purpose is to recognize significant events that occur in the lives of the Sedona Women Membership.
