Want to get more involved?
If you want to get more involved in social media and the Lawrence community, the Social Media Club of Lawrence is looking for you!
It’s time to add new volunteers to the board of directors.
What does the board of directors do?
We communicate with each other frequently via email using a Google group. We plan weekly- yes, weekly!- meetings for folks in Lawrence and the surrounding areas who are interested in social media. We have solutions meetings for non-profit groups and other organizations who are looking for help with social media. We occasionally plan lunch or evening meetings and presentations. And we help promote other social media-related events in the area.
All of this takes a dedicated group of volunteers who are committed to making this awesome group even bigger and more awesome.
What positions are available?
Glad you asked. Currently, the board has six members. We aren’t going to restrict ourselves to a specific number of members; rather, we want to see how many people are interested and what they’re interested in doing. The more, the merrier! Or, at least, the more volunteers, the more the work is spread out.
We’re looking for a chairperson as well as volunteers to work on four main areas: programs, promotions, membership and education/technology/advocacy. Click here to read descriptions of each area’s responsibilities.
Of course, all board members are expected to support and help each other.
One big change for the upcoming year: all board members are expected to contribute at least two program topic ideas per month. Programming weekly meetings is a big job, and it takes more than one person to do the work.
How do I get involved?
Easy! Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us a little bit about yourself, what you hope to contribute, ideas you have and the area (or areas) you are most interested in working on.
We’ll take applications, for lack of a better word, until January 26.
At that point, we’ll evaluate how many people are interested and determine how to proceed- most likely, we’ll simply assign volunteers to areas of interest, but if we get lucky and have twenty people interested, we may have to hold elections of some kind.
So, think about it, and let us know if you want to get involved!
(If you aren’t interested in being on the board, we’d still welcome your input about meeting topics, locations, speakers and other suggestions you might have.)
