Volunteers are the backbone of CALL. We sincerely thank all of our dedicated volunteers! We are truly lucky to have such a rich diversity of experience to call upon, their gift of time and talent is immeasurable, and CALL would not be here and now without our volunteers!
“CALL” for Volunteers
This is a great way to get involved in CALL, meet new people and to provide some valuable help. There are many ways to help out at CALL. Some are one-time events, while others are longer term and require a regular time commitment. If you are able to help with any of these, we’d love to hear from you!
CALL needs YOU!
As the organization has grown, so has the need for volunteers, so now CALL is looking for a Volunteer Coordinator to help match identified needs with willing CALL members.
This is a new position for CALL and the Coordinator will help determine how best to carry out the job. The following are suggestive of ways this might be done:
E.g. The webmaster is looking for someone to assist with posting CALL events and information to Meet-Up. This may require one or two hours a week. Basic computer skills required.
E.g. Post description on the website, make announcements at CALL events, talk to individuals at these events.
In addition, the Coordinator may work with others to:
NOTE: The Volunteer Coordinator is not a member of the Board and not expected to attend Board or Committee meetings except occasionally as requested in order to clarify the needs and to assist in developing a description of what skill sets are needed.

Social Media Co-ordinator Do you want to learn about Twitter? Get some experience with Facebook? Do you want to help CALL join the new millennium? Come join our new born Social Media team!
Members are encouraged to discuss their ideas for possible interest groups with one of the Interest Area Coordinators. If you would like to propose a topic for a new program or interest group or become a facilitator, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also propose a new interest group verbally at a monthly CALL Café.
CALL Cafés throughout the year – We are also hoping to create small teams of 3-4 people to look after refreshments at the CALL Cafés, usually held one Monday afternoon per month at Rosedale Hall. The plan is for teams to rotate so that we can accommodate people’s schedules and keep the loads light. Please contact Carol Gerein to let us know about your interest and availability.
Annual Board and Committee Nominations (Every Summer)
Are you interested in working on any of CALL’s committees, or perhaps chairing one and serving on the Board? If so, now is the time to let us know!
