Welcome to the INPAWS Cookbook, your guide to tasks and functions that keep our organization running.
Our aim in putting this together is to enable officers and committee chairs to engage fellow INPAWS members in enjoyable tasks that will contribute to our enterprise and bring a sense of accomplishment.
Tasks & Functions

Plant Sale & Auction
The Cookbook breaks down officer duties, committee responsibilities, and supporting roles into discrete functions that use specific talents and expertise. Think of these as “job descriptions” for engaging volunteers in the work of INPAWS.
IMPORTANT: To be most effective, volunteers should take on tasks that inspire or excite them, not just things they already know how to do. Encourage them to try something new that they think would be fun. The necessary pointers can be furnished by pairing them with experienced members.
