What Do Chapter Coordinators Do?
Chapter Coordinators identify, recruit, and network with fellow LDS colleagues in their respective area. As AMCAP membership grows in a given area, the opportunity to unite the talents and specialties of many to accomplish good works significantly increases. There is strength in numbers, and many minds are better than one mind. Some AMCAP chapters meet monthly, while others meet two to three times a year. Some Chapter Coordinators work with Church leaders to hold a conferences for members on marriage, parenting, or a specific mental health problem that is troubling the Saints in that area. Other Chapter Coordinators offer training to LDS leaders about mental health problems and community resources available to help Saints who may struggle with specific problems.
