We’re seeking folks to Chair two of the committees that support WisCon!
What does a “Chair” do, though? And what’s all this about “Committees”?
Well, our Committee Chairs are primarily project managers — they make sure that the necessary tasks get done in order to carry out that committee’s purpose. When needed, they make the decision to cancel tasks that can’t be successful due to a lack of time, resources, volunteers, or all three. They are appointed by the board president of SF3, which is the nonprofit that provides oversight for WisCon.
You can think of our committees as workgroups, each of which has a clear purpose and purview.
There are currently three peer committees, and all are necessary for each others’ success:
- The ConCom (Convention Committee), whose purpose is to carry out WisCon.
- The Communications Committee, whose purpose is to maintain a flow of information between all of our projects (including WisCon!) and our community.
- The Personnel Committee, whose purpose is to recruit, equip, and support all of our volunteers.
We need a chair for Communications, and a chair for Personnel. We have some volunteers ready to go to do the work in each of those committees, but we need you to step in! We’re also happy to help you find someone with whom you can co-chair, if you don’t want to go it alone.
Interested? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest, or with any questions.
(Interested, but not in being a chair? Hold tight, we’ll have a post soon with information on volunteering for communications, for personnel, and for the ConCom! But we need to fill these two spots first, so tell your organized pals to reach out!)
