Opportunities to Volunteer:
The Presentation Committee (Christine Dwyer, Chair) needs volunteers to “enlist” for speaking engagements, presentations, booth-manning and what ever else comes up.
The way it works: When I get a request for a Speaker, presentation, etc., I send a group email to all volunteers on the list with details of the event. If you would like to participate, you merely send me an email with your intentions. Depending on the response, I will select someone to do the job. Placing one’s name on the Presentation Committee list does not commit you to do anything. If you are not interested, just delete that email.
Often there is a stipend for the speaker. When we man a booth, sometimes there is an opportunity to sell things like honey or other hive products.
If you are not on the list yet and would like to be, please call 401-808-5136 or send me an email: email@example.com
There are a few slots I need to fill for two April events. Put your name on the list and I will email you the details – Christine
ALSO NEEDED: A very reliable, capable person to be an Equipment Manager.
There are also opportunities on other committees for volunteers to lend a hand.
Inquire at the next meeting.
