Hey friends - I was going to post this as a question for all candidates but thought it might make a better discussion topic for all makers
We talk a lot about how we need more people to volunteer, our key form even asks how you’re going to volunteer. It is obvious that a ton of work goes into running our space. Volunteering is awesome. What’s even more powerful though is leveraging and channeling volunteer energy - double yourself by getting someone else to do what you can do.
SO pretend a new member came up to you and said “Hey, I’d like to help out more, what can I do?” - how would you respond?
This actually happens to me fairly often. Sometimes it comes with additional things about them, everything from “I’ve got some time this weekend” to “I’m going to be bored in an airport terminal with a computer” to “I’d like to help out X hours every week for the next six months”. All different answers! But really, be specific, what would your answer to some of these different people be today?
