Meeting Set Up Crew

Our set up crew meets an hour before each CVR meeting and stays 30-40 minutes after a meeting to set up and tear down our space. They also manage our sign in tables and coffee bar.

Time Commitment: 2hrs/month on meeting days (only meeting once per month from now on)

People Needed: 5-10

Apply now.

Marketing Team

There is an interest and a need for internal trainings for our membership on a variety of topics (racial justice, religion, activism, leadership, etc.). The existing committee is thinking about how best to coordinate and provide trainings. We really need people who have experience with these topics, providing these sorts of trainings, or organizing these sorts of resources.

Time Commitment: Not absolutely set since this is still very much in the planning phase. 1-2hrs/month for committee meeting to start.

People Needed: Anyone with an interest and experience! 2-4+ people would be great!

Apply now.

Bloggers

Another project we need help to start thinking about is our blog space on the website. One option may be to use it simply as a more easily accessible and digestible space for committee updates and requests for help. If you have blogging experience or ideas and would like to take this project on let us know.

Time Commitment: Unknown until we decide exactly what the blog space will be used for. Could be weekly or monthly likely ranging 1-4hrs total.

People Needed: 1-3

Apply now.

Logistics Subcommittee

If you have event planning experience and/or are a detailed oriented person this is the group for you! This group does not plan/carry out all of our events from start to finish, but will help with the initial steps.

Purpose: Act as central point of contact for any group that wants to host an event on behalf of/as CVR. For example, if a Policy and Advocacy subcommittee wants to apply for a booth at a festival or Voting and Elections wants to host a public event for new candidate education, they would first submit their idea to our logistics team. The logistics team will then follow a set of protocols to determine if the event fits within CVR’s mission or conflicts with any other events, get it approved by Steering, and then help the initial group set up a timeline for their event/get started according to CVR’s best practices.

Logistics will also be responsible for supplying proof of insurance for events when needed, and tracking our supplies - reusable banners, tables, tent, chairs, printed marketing materials for booths, etc.

Time Commitment: 2-6hrs/month. Willing to commit at least 6-12 months initially.​

People Needed: 4-6+ , will also need 2-3 people willing to chair the committee.

Apply now.

Speaker Recruitment

Keep track of suggested speakers and topics. Choose which topics/speakers/trainings to set up for monthly meetings moving forward. Get approval from steering (formality), and contact/book presentations. Responsible for introducing speakers (get bios, provide information for agenda), logistics for presentation (projector? Screen? Multiple mics for discussion?), Manage Q&A sections (hand around wireless mics during Q&A).

Time Commitment: Arrive ½ hour early to meetings, attend monthly CVR meetings (2hrs), 1-3 hours (max) outside of meeting time/month to coordinate speakers. The further out speakers are booked, the less monthly time will be required.

People Needed: 2-4 (more if interested!)
