Position: Volunteer Coordinator (contractor)
Reports To: Chair, Board of Directors
Coordinates With: Membership & Community Committee
The Volunteer Coordinator position exists to connect individuals who have expressed an interest in volunteering specific opportunities to contribute to BOP programs and activities for the purpose of expanding the impact of BOP on the LGBTQIA community.
Preference will be given to applicants with an understanding of the lived experience of individuals identifying as bisexual, pansexual, fluid and/or queer.
Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP) seeks to contract with an individual to create and maintain a volunteer program to support and expand the programs and activities BOP offers. Initial commitment is expected to be approximately 10 hours per week. This is a paid, 1099 contractor position.
This position will need to develop a volunteer database based on existing data collected both electronically and on paper records. Information will need to be verified and areas of interest identified through contacts with individuals. A system for managing the information about the various needs for volunteers will need to be established and board members, committee chairs and project leads will need to be trained in its use.
It is extremely important that BOP volunteers be satisfied with their volunteer experience so a check in or feedback system will need to be established and responded to. Some training of volunteer supervisors may be necessary to enhance the volunteer experience.
As an all-volunteer nonprofit, it is very important to BOP that the VC not take on additional duties outside the management of volunteer opportunities.
Please direct inquiries and/or resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Resumes will be accepted until the position is filled.
BECAUSE 2020 Cancelled
The BECAUSE leadership team and the BOP board have been reviewing forecasts for what this Fall will look like including continued COVID hotspots, limitations on travel, and how people are going to be feeling about being large groups. We feel the most responsible action at this time is to cancel BECAUSE 2020. We have explored moving the conference on line as many conferences and gatherings have done and find it is not the best option for BECAUSE.
The BOP board is developing virtual community building that we hope will help bridge this time for our community. Please check out BOP's Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Meetup Group, and Twitter to stay informed of upcoming events.
We are currently in discussion with our location, Wellstone Center, and our planned speakers and special guests to make BECAUSE 2021 one of the best ever. We hope you will join us in October 2021.
