The Membership & Outreach Committee provides information to prospective members and welcomes new members, facilitating their participation in activities and committees. The committee plans new member orientations during the year and several events for members and prospective members. This devoted group of volunteers needs help with:
Welcoming and registering guests who attend open AAWGT meetings. It involves arriving early to meetings and greeting guests, having them sign in, encouraging them to sign up for our newsletter, etc.
Serving as Buddies to new members. Whenever a new member joins, Membership tries to connect them with a veteran member who will welcome her, encourage her to attend the upcoming meetings and give her a sense of the committee structure and ways she might choose to become more involved with AAWGT. We like to have a list of folks to draw from when a new member joins and doesn't have any particular connection to a current member.
Each year, Membership is responsible for organizing a volunteer activity with one of our current or past grantees. Last year, several members helped serve as course monitors for a Girls on the Run race at the Community College, for example. It would involve looking for opportunities for a one time volunteer event, publicizing it through the newsletter to our membership, and coordinating sign up.
