Hi all,

We're recruiting members to join our network of fabulous volunteers who support NTEN's online community groups! There are several openings across the various online groups, but we're specifically looking for a few folks to join this group's organizing team.

We recognize that women and femme-identifying folks are typically underrepresented in the IT field. So in the interests of equity and diversity we'd like to help make the group even stronger by recruiting 1-2 women and femme-identifying folks to join the wonderful @Richard Wollenberger and @Colin Boyle on the leadership team.

Lead volunteers help facilitate discussion and knowledge-sharing. Successful volunteers are friendly, enjoy helping people feel welcome, and have a genuine curiosity about the group topic. Subject matter expertise is not necessary. Basic responsibilities include welcoming new group members, making sure posts get responded to in a timely manner, and seeding discussion posts. Volunteers in this role will also help facilitate and support the monthly community call.

(I'd also like to recruit a community welcomer volunteer for this group. This is a new role which does not yet have a formal description. Community welcomers will give new group members a hearty hello each week. This could be a good opportunity for anyone who wants to get more involved, but isn't ready for a larger commitment.)

Join me and several current volunteers on December 14 to learn more about getting involved:

Feel free to post questions here.​​​
