Associate Committee

The Associate Committee is comprised of a group of young leaders who volunteer to help Answer the Call connect with young professionals in the New York area. They do this by planning special fundraising events, including our Red & Blue Soiree. In addition, they volunteer their time and skills to make a long-term impact on Answer the Call.
