Volunteer with EENC

Want to get involved with EENC?  EENC is always looking for help to help with committees, action projects, and special events!  Volunteering is great way to help other educators across our state, share your voice to help EENC better serve our professional community, and it's a chance to get to know some really cool people.

Have questions about volunteering? Contact Lauren Pyle.

Current Opportunities

Resource Development Committee

Are you an EE professional that has recently become much more involved in raising funds for your organization or program than you were before?  Or are you interested in building your skills related to development?  EENC is looking for 2-3 volunteers to be part of our resource development committee.

This team will virtually meet each month in 2022.  Join this team to:

  • Learn the in's and out's of EENC's development efforts. You'll get to know our development strategies, explore our tools, and learn from our previous experiences

  • Gain experience in a variety of techniques that you can use in your own workplace

  • Exchange resources, feedback and ideas in this small community-of-practice type environment

  • Be mentored by EENC's current Resource Development Chair and Executive Director

  • Help advance EENC’s mission-driven work!

Are you a fundraising or development professional looking to give some of your time to support this work?  We'd be happy to add mentors to this group as well!

Contact Lauren Pyle to get involved in this committee.

Policy Committee

Join the Policy Committee to help us run EENC more justly, efficiently, and with greater capacity. This opportunity is for any anyone who is interested in making EENC better through internal structures. We want your skills and knowledge if you are a policy or operations expert. We also want your thoughts and energy if this is something you want to learn more about!

Overarching Goals:

  • Review and create guiding policies for EENC 

  • Make sure that EENC Board actions meet policy guidelines

  • Include non-board member volunteers

Participation expectations: 

  • One virtual 1-hour meeting per month

  • Review and edit up to three different policy documents per month 

  • Estimated time commitment: 1-3 hours per month

  • Research best practices for nonprofit management related to specific policies

Contact Brian Wuertz to get involved in this committee.

  • Mini-Grant Reviewers (March)
  • Conference Session Proposal Reviewers (April-May)
  • Conference Scholarship Application Reviewers (May-June)
