For example, dedicate a page on the chapter website to describing volunteer opportunities of all kinds. Highlight upcoming microvolunteering opportunities in newsletters, on social platforms, and on the website. Describe any open leadership positions, including task forces, advisory groups, special interest groups, and committees.
Members are less likely to commit to something if they don’t really know what they’re in for. Make leadership and volunteering more transparent and accessible to all members, especially those who are not “in the loop.”
- Include testimonials from volunteers and chapter leaders about their experience and the impact it had on their lives.
- Explain how the chapter is governed: how decisions are made, how leaders get appointed, how long they serve, and where to start if you want to climb the leadership ladder.
