Volunteer  Management Model
 
The Fort Worth PMI chapter has developed a Volunteer Management Model.  This model defines four levels of volunteers.  As a volunteer grows, the next steps in the ladder have been defined. 



 
There are benefits associated with each level and increase commensurate with your investment.  These include discounts, leadership development and of course - resume enhancers!
 
Where should you start?  Why not select a level one or level two opportunity first?  Get to know some of the terrific volunteers and chapter members.  Once you have completed your volunteer assignment or project, we'll be happy to work with you on your next opportunity!

Presenters: We are always looking for high quality presenters for our lunch and dinner membership meeting events. If you have a topic relevant to project management that is educational, please let us know!

Interested in working on a team?

Registration management:  help us onsite working the registration table.  Choose events throughout the year that you'd be willing to staff the registration table at either lunch or dinner meetings.

Event management:  help us with planning and set up prior to a meeting or closing out the meeting.  Possible assignments include creating the agenda, calling in meal guarantees, filing PDUs and administrative closeout.

Membership team:  would you like to help our new members learn about the chapter at an orientation?  Staff a membership booth at a meeting? be part of the welcoming committee?

Volunteer Management:  we need more recruiters and help place volunteers in volunteer roles; onboarding specialists and manage the volunteer opportunities or help run the volunteer orientation webinars.

Communications team:  write articles for upcoming newsletters; update / add new website content; manage the communications calendar and prioritize new development for website.


Teams meet as needed to work on tasks.  This may be once a month or several times/year.  Send an email to the volunteer management team if you'd like to work on a team.
