Are you interested in helping your chapter thrive? Consider volunteering for one of our open positions – it’s a great way to meet people, improve your professional skills, and network. We have a wonderful group of volunteers, and we can always use more!
If you’re new to the technical communication field, volunteering is an excellent way to beef up your portfolio with examples of your work.
One great way to meet our chapter members is to serve on the Nominating Committee. The committee starts its work late in the calendar year to find candidates for the following year. This position is critical to continue the great work our chapter does.
The nominating committee members serve on the administrative council as non-voting members and perform the following duties:
- Invite members to run for office
- Evaluate qualifications of possible candidates and announce the slate of candidates
- Prepare the ballot, hold the election, and report the results
- The ballot is in Survey Monkey and it’s easy to create a new one by copying last year’s ballot and modifying it.
If you’re interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your contact information.
Thanks for considering volunteering for YOUR chapter. Your chapter is only as good as the people who volunteer to lead and participate. It’s a wonderful way to improve your people and technical skills while adding to your resume.
