SNIA Committees are small groups that meet regularly to work on issues important to the community—from safety and crime prevention to dog park maintenance and neighborhood promotion—and are a great way to get involved and meet other Shaw residents. Committee volunteers generally serve for at least one year and commit to attend regular meetings and work on projects outside the committee meeting times. Meeting schedules are determined by the individual committee. Work load varies by committee.
