We need volunteers for the following:

Speaker Seeker: Lead the speaker seeker committee, who will assist with the speaker seeker duties when directed, and give feedback on speaker choices. Listen to suggestions from members and speaker seeker committee. Choose speakers that the group is interested in, and that reflect variety and push outside the boundaries of the usual Bellingham lineup as much as possible. Make contact with potential speakers, line up event dates. Get speaker info (bio, photo, talk description). Ensure the speaker will be taken care of upon arrival.

Event Planning: Volunteers for getting stuff done to see that our events run smoothly and to start putting on more events under the WWP banner.

Treasurer Support: Back up for the treasurer in case of absences. Helping with collecting fees and dues at events and keeping track of the monies.

Website & Social Media Team: Helping make the website a more rich and wonderful experience for our members.

Hospitality Committee: Greeting people at events, checking them in, making them feel welcome.

Publicity Committee: Help get our information and events out to the public, and acting as community liaisons between our group and other groups/the public.
