Volunteers Needed ASAP for our Society
Not only is It OK to self-nominate; in fact, it is required in today’s hybrid world. If you are interested in any position or task at all, please email a board member right now!!
You all know what your interests and talents are!!
1. Nominating Committee members – this is an important job required to keep the society functioning. We need a member to Chair this committee and work with 2 or 3 other members. Goal: prepare a slate of officer candidates to present to BOD Oct 7th meeting.
Board terms that expire this December are President, Secretary, and 1st VP Programs. Time required: a few meetings, some emails, a few phone calls between now and October. Email Dianne Arnold firstname.lastname@example.org. Board positions need a commitment to spend two years helping to guide the society. The board meets approx. 10 times/year via Zoom. Board members each have a specific portfolio that requires time spent each month to fulfill the needs. A big benefit to serving on the board is getting to know a group of enthusiastic genealogy buffs and work as a team to further our mission. I encourage members who attend our meetings and classes regularly and benefit from our programming to look into your hearts and seriously consider giving back by stepping up for a board position. Email any board member with questions or email Dianne Arnold to put your name in the hat (email@example.com).
3. Publicity Committee – contact one neighborhood publication (more if you wish) and work with Don Williams to spread the good word about our programs and classes. Most of these tasks require only a few hours a year. Email Don Williams firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Volunteer Coordinator – We are back to contemplating more in-person events; we need 1 or 2 members to organize informal gatherings and to help the BOD recruit members for specific tasks. Email Dianne Arnold email@example.com or Christy Dolan firstname.lastname@example.org or Regina Gigl email@example.com .
