Interested in how our first volunteers meeting went?
On 9th February we hosted our first volunteers meeting and were very encouraged by the number of attendees and their commitment to helping build Your Party. The meeting began with a brief presentation, followed by Q&A and one-on-one discussions. We now have active volunteers in a number of areas from technology to membership to campaigning. If you'd like to attend such a meeting then please e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org
However, we have a huge amount of work to do and still need more volunteers in these and the other areas:
The party recently confirmed its decision to enter the European elections on June 10th 2004. We are looking for a Campaign Manager for the election and people to help with all aspects of campaigning.
The Membership Department will be responsible for growing the membership (and providing the members with support once they have joined the party). We are looking for people in all parts of the country to help with this work. If you're part of a network of any sort then we'd also love to hear from you.
Marketing and PR
The Marketing and PR team will work closely with the Campaigns and Membership teams to increase awareness, membership and votes. While coverage in the national media is vital, we also want to ensure that we cover local media and marketing opportunities.
The intelligent and user-friendly application of technology lies at the heart of Your Party. We need a wide range of technical skills to help implement this.
We need a Head of Fundraising as well fundraising assistance at every level. All and any help will be invaluable!
Editorial and Research
The editorial and research team will provide content and research for the site including discussions, voting processes and information on the candidates. We are also looking for moderators and experts in all key policy areas.
We need help with a number of areas - from drafting the constitution to ensuring that we are complying with all the relevant registration and legal requirements to running the party in the best possible way.
If you'd like to help us with any of the above - or indeed any other area - then please contact us at email@example.com. All help will be enormously appreciated and we hope it will be prove to be an exciting opportunity for everyone!
