Get Involved! Chapter Leadership Opportunities
Are you thinking about becoming more involved in AMWA? To maintain an active, vibrant chapter, we rely on our members to volunteer to serve in leadership positions. We have openings on our Board of Directors and hope you will consider volunteering.
What's in it for you? Each position offers opportunities for career, professional, and personal growth, for example, as a Chapter leader you can:
- Become more visible among your peers and potential clients/employers.
- Build a network of professional contacts who can refer business to you or recommend you for a position.
- Learn new skills or hone your current skills.
- Make new friends.
Is prior experience needed? No, just willingness and enthusiasm. All of these open positions come with advice and support from other board members, from retiring members who can (and are happy to!) answer questions and provide guidance, and from AMWA national resources such as the Chapter Conference Handbook.
The Board meets several times a year via conference call. That means you can participate no matter where you live in the region. Board members also periodically use e-mail to share and discuss relevant information.
If you have an idea for a open session or a roundtable breakfast that you would like to lead at our annual AMWA-MAC regional conference, please fill out this "Proposal for Workshop and Roundtable" form and email it to Tracy Warren at firstname.lastname@example.org or Christie Rogers at email@example.com. The planning committee will consider your proposal. Thank you!
If you think you might be interested in volunteering, please contact Cherie Dewar or Stefan Schuber for more details. We will be happy to answer any questions, and we look forward to hearing from you!
