2013-2014 was another successful season for NY SPIN. A hearty thank you to all of our volunteers, attendees, speakers, sponsors, and supporters who helped make it so exciting and worthwhile.
Now we're gearing up for another fabulous season for you to exchange knowledge of process improvement and network with other professionals for mutual career development. Our key goals include finding team leaders and volunteer staff for several key committees. Let us know which of the below committees you'd like to join (or any other role you'd like to play), to make 2014-2015 our best season ever!
Program: Propose and help find and schedule speakers. Possibly be the key contact for one or more speakers ensuring they are in sync with the plan for the date and location of the event, and helping coordinate with the Event committee on event day to get the Speaker set up.
Event: Help find and book venues; venue communications; speaker orientation to the meeting space, sound, and projector; reception (great for face time); refreshments; facilitate networking; respond as needed to make the meeting successful; cleanup.
Sponsorship: Identify prospective sponsors; introduce them to the idea and benefits of becoming sponsor; packages; work with the Board to seal the deal; help manage the relationship to ensure they get the value they expected or better, so they'll renew next season!
Marketing: Help us get the word out about NY SPIN and our events. Are you good at networking? Maybe you have a bit of marketing experience or want to get some. Maybe you are good at and can assist with using social media. All experience and enthusiasm welcome.
Interested? Please reply to 2014Volunteer@nyspin.org with "Volunteering" in the subject line and provide your name, contact information including phone number, and the committee you'd like to volunteer for.
