Can you take great photos?
Do you have a way with words? Would you love to write pithy press releases, concise copy for marketing materials, engaging articles for the newsletter and website?
Are you an organizing ninja with mad tech skills who likes behind the scenes work that keeps everything going?
Are you gifted at graphics? Do your images tell a story, tug the heartstrings, and inspire action?
Do the ideas of wordpress, website, and user experience get you excited?
How about social media? Do you love to post to Instagram or tag your friends on Facebook?
Are you an historian? Do you love to keep track of what’s been done and said and organize it in a way that people can access the history to tell our impact story?
Well, we want you!
Whether you can help a little or a lot each week, if you like to dive in, commit, and follow through, we have a place for your energy and skills.
We meet twice a month. We make the meeting briefly and spend the rest of the time doing the work while we are together. We can workshop ideas, get and give feedback, and have a little fun while we are getting things done. Plus we feel great because we accomplish so much and know that our work matters.
To make things easy we have picked two standing times we will meet at the library. Bring your laptop, tablet or phone and be ready to dive in.
At 9 am on the second Wednesday of the month.
At 6 pm on the third Thursday of the month.
If you can make both work sessions, super!
If you can only make it to one of the sessions, let us know which one works for you and we can make that work, too.
