New Chapter Admin Council

As a result of the June 2018 election for chapter leaders on the Administrative Council, the following shows our new Admin Council for 2018-2019.

The new chapter officers for 2018-2019
2018-2019 WDCB chapter officers

The Chapter Officers page has live links to their chapter contact address and to their biographies. Check it out and get to know your admin council.

Volunteer on a Committee or Two

Some of the new officers have taken on managing a chapter committee. We have many openings for serving on the chapter committees and opportunities to become part of the chapter leadership, learn new skills, share your expertise, show your stuff, learn more about STC and how the chapter operates. Bring us your ideas. See the Chapter Committees page.

Please review the committee openings. An important role we are looking to fill is the Events Manager. Click on the position title to find out what is involved for helping with that role. Some are small tasks and may be only be a one-time effort—you may want to volunteer for more than one. That’s great. The more roles we can get filled, the smoother the chapter will operate. We like volunteers. We reward you for your efforts in various ways (such as a certificate of appreciation, a free attendance for working an event, a gift, flowers, we’ll think of something). We’ll let your boss know about you.

Review the list of Current chapter volunteer openings and read the job descriptions. To sign up as a volunteer, fill out the Volunteer form.

WDCB Admin Council Update: Still Need Secretary and Treasurer nominations

We have received nominations / volunteers to run for chapter president, vice president, and at-large-directors on the administrative council. We still need some volunteers to run for chapter secretary and treasurer. Nominate yourself or someone else. Run again–we welcome experienced repeats. Send election nominations to the Nominations Manager.

A good election is always a contested election: so don’t be shy. Even though we’ve received names of volunteers who are willing to run for some offices, if you want to be a contender, nominate yourself!

Job descriptions for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and At-Large Director are at https://wdcb.stcwdc.org/about-us/admin-council/admin-council-roles/.

You don’t need a vision statement—just a willingness to volunteer, support our profession, and learn leadership skills.

If you don’t win the office of your choice, we can always use volunteers as committee managers. Gain some experience in leadership and in working with a group of volunteers. Our committees are described at https://wdcb.stcwdc.org/about-us/committees/ with links to the job descriptions for each position. To volunteer for a committee, fill out the Volunteer Signup form at https://wdcb.stcwdc.org/about-us/volunteers/volunteer/.
