Branch Executive Board for 2022-23 – Volunteers Needed

Thank you to all who have answered the call to participate in our branch leadership positions, committees and project teams for the current fiscal year, July 2022 to June 2023. So far we have a terrific group of motivated volunteers! However, we’re still in need of one key officer:

  • Co-VP of Programs to partner with Tanya Earls.

Please contact either co-president Chris Ritter or Joanne Quijano if you are interested in this position or in volunteering for any of the areas listed below.

Join a Branch Team for 2022 -23!

One way to meet new people in our branch is to join a team, or committee, to help accomplish our branch’s goals. These committees mostly work on short-term projects supporting our branch mission while enabling you to connect with other like-minded members. Some of our branch committees are in need leaders; many could use more members. Check the areas in blue listed below for opportunities to get involved. Volunteer efforts are critical to the ongoing success of our branch activities, programs, and advocacy efforts!

Tech Trek Volunteers Needed

We funded 12 campers for the Tech Trek STEM 2022 Camp and well on our way to funding campers for 2023. Our branch selects the middle school girls who will attend each year and we underwrite the cost of $1,000 per girl, with families asked to contribute a nominal fee of $50.

We’re already looking for volunteers to help with 2023 Tech Trek roles including:

  • Selection and interview teams
  • Camp workshop leader
  • Camp assistant (help with workshops, classes or other activities at the camp)
  • Dorm mom
  • Ice cream social helper
  • Participate on professional women’s panel one evening during the June camp
  • Help Deborah develop tools to communicate with and track the girls after their camp experiences. This might be a social media solution, a database, or a combination. The goal is to continue mentoring these young women as they go on to high school and college
