Chafen is responsible for planning and coordinating all of the programming for this historic institution. With a membership base of over 2,000 members, and whose Board of Directors is comprised of the top Fortune 500 CEOs in the state, the Club serves as the perfect venue to showcase her many events which frequently feature topics of social relevance.
