It's finally time to get this campaign revved up. Are you excited? I am. At first I was feeling unsure about this whole process, but the more people I talk to, the more I realize that everyone is up to the challenge. With amazing people on my side, we can win this thing. So here's what I need to start...
Newsletter and email list coordinator - you'll be in charge of sending out a weekly newsletter and any email communications to the list. It's mostly automated.
Volunteer coordinator - are you good at organization? I need someone who is willing to wrangle volunteers for events that we have planned. This position will heat up the closer we get to November. For now it's just keeping volunteers informed, telling them where and when to show up when we need them. This is a very important job. Your help will be vital.
Merchandise - someone to help with getting out signs, shirts, all the things! We haven't set up a shop yet, this is a pending position.
Website manager - can you use Wordpress or another blog platform? I need someone to keep my website updated with events and other things to keep people informed. If you don't know Wordpress it's very easy to learn. You don't need to be creative, you just need a few hours a week to keep all the campaign happenings up to date on the site.
News Writers - I want to keep people updated with what is happening on the board and in education issues across the country. If you're someone who usually has their head in the news and has opinions about it, here's a chance to flex those writing muscles. You would basically just be reposting stories you think our voters would be interested in, and if you want to give your opinion writing a shot, I'm open. I can help, it's what I do for a living.
General volunteer - I know many of you have already sent me an email or a message. Once I have a coordinator I can send out an official call for volunteers. Duties will vary and obviously will depend on how much we do and where and when.
I'm also looking for people to host meet and greets for me. If you're willing to book your clubhouse or volunteer your driveway, I will come to you! I can't wait to talk to as many people as possible. Thanks to those who have come out to my preliminary events. I'll be doing more and bigger events as we move along.
