The Club has an immediate opening for a Volunteer Coordinator, a significant volunteer position that has been open for a while. This is a pivotal and high profile support role that someone can configure in their own way and do on their own schedule. It can be a very satisfying way to make a real difference in the Sailing Club, with perhaps the most rewarding part being the opportunity to work with and get to know fellow Club members and the Board.
Providing the main support for volunteer culture in the Club, the position involves overseeing and encouraging Club volunteerism by keeping members aware of all volunteer opportunities and by updating the volunteer interests section of the membership database. It will include advertising and perhaps actively recruiting for key non-Board volunteer positions, liaising wth committee heads and the Board to advertise varying volunteer needs, reviewing job descriptions, and helping members to find their volunteering niche in the Club. It may eventually evolve into being the head of a new committee. A rough idea of what the job has involved in the past can be found here, although the job description needs updating: https://www.saltspringsailing.ca/volunteers/job_desc/volunteer_coord.pdf.
Former volunteer coordinators Wendy Vine (email@example.com, phone number in yearbook) and John Tulip (firstname.lastname@example.org, phone number in yearbook) are open to discussing with interested members what the job involves.
