CHAPTER LEADERSHIP ROLES (LONG-TERM)
Cystic Fibrosis Canada is always looking for people interested in providing insight and leadership within a local Chapter. Leadership volunteers offer strategic and tactical guidance as they contribute with their professional and past volunteer experience to the development and growth of the local chapter. Responsibilities may include recruiting other volunteers, assisting with the communications of the chapter, finances sponsorships and advocacy. Some examples of positions include: Chapter President, Chapter Treasurer, Chapter Kin Canada Liaison and others. Please contact your local Chapter or Regional office for more information.
From helping at the registration table to chairing some great Chapter events, our Special event volunteers play a key role in guaranteeing the success of the Chapter’s fundraising activities. The volunteer roles in this area are divided into two categories:
- Day of the Event Support (short-term): This is a short-term commitment where volunteers help by providing logistical support on the day of the event (registration, silent auctions, selling raffle tickets, etc.)
- Event Planning Committees (mid/long-term): The members of an event’s planning committee provide the logistical decisions about particular fundraising events. Some examples include: taking on the role of the Chair of the Walk, or being in charge of sponsorship for the event.
- Office Support Role (if applicable): Office support volunteers play a very important role in the day-to-day operations of Regional office or local Chapters. Office volunteers can work on a regular basis or casually (depending on the needs of each location) and they assist staff with tasks such as data-entry, answering the phone, greeting the public and other activities as need.
