Volunteering: What’s in it for YOU?

| 0

Do you want to meet new people, learn new skills, share the skills you have with others?

The Pacific NW Glass Guild commissioned our new website to help the glass community in the Pacific NW region stay informed and in touch. BUT… to do that we invite volunteers from all over the region to help carry the load. In return for your time we’ll help you learn new computer skills, introduce you to new friends, and learn all sorts of new things about glass.

  • If you’re selling your work or have an event, we can help you (see the Communications and Gallery articles in this issue).
  • If you’re just thinking about selling your work, come to one of our meetings where experienced artists share their tips on pricing, photography, studio setup etc. (or watch the video of the meeting later).
  • For individualized answers, you can ask the member-only Facebook group almost anything.

Can we count you as part of the team?

We depend on folks like you to volunteer to answer a question, schedule a meeting, send an email, write a newsletter article, lead a discussion, host a Play Day, record a meeting, post a video, help keep our website running… The Guild is only as strong as the members’ commitment to keeping it going.

If you have a few hours a month or a couple of hours a week to share with your fellow glass enthusiasts, please glance through the list. Find something that interests you and contact that team. In almost all cases, if you have a computer, we can train you to do any of the tasks you dare to try (webmaster needs some WordPress background but if you have that, you’ll get an experienced coach to help expand your skills there too). If you don’t have a computer, you can help with in-person events, just contact the coordinator of the event you want to assist with. Everyone is welcome.

New friends and new skills are just a click away:
