Just putting a couple volunteer opportunities out there, in case some members are chomping at the bit to take on a larger role in the greenhouse society over the next year.
We are looking for members interested in the following:
This person will chair a committee to promote awareness and participation in the greenhouse and related themes. Activities could include, but are not restricted to, event coordination, media outreach and publication development. The ideal person would be creative, self-motivated and keenly interested developing the greenhouse as a sustainable and welcoming community resource. He/she would have to occasionally attend board meetings, and would likely work most closely with the GH chair and the GH webmaster.
RESEARCH COMMITTEE MEMBERS
These members will assist the chair of the research committee to identify research priorities for the greenhouse and its members, establish basic research regimens, and liaise with potential scientific partners. Members will likely not be required to attend board meetings. This committee will likely work most closely with the GH vice-chair and the GH operations committee chair.
Unfortunately I can't give you an estimated time commitment for either of these, as we expect the volunteers would be fairly self-directed. However, if you would like to chat more about the research committee, please contact Erin Gordey (cc'ed to this email). And if you would like to chat more about the outreach committee, please contact me at this email.
I eagerly await the deluge of correspondence from interested members. :)
