My first main goal from the beginning was to focus on creating a group that serves as a central point of communication for members and non-members regarding questions about a committee, with a later goal to expand. Now that tour guide training documentation is just about done, I’d like to start looking forward. While there’s some possibility within the next line of BOD/President succession that this role could dissolve, I’d really like for it not to as it would provide value to the organization as time goes on.
The goal of this group is to help become a point of communication for general questions to internal and external DMS members. Want to know what you need to do to get training on a thing? We would be the people to ask. Not honestly sure who to ask questions of? Ideally we help point you in the right direction. With that in mind, since there’s really no processes and controls in place for when things change (other than hunting it down on the Wiki which may or may not always be updated), I’d like to work to fix that. This means part of the role/responsibility would be helping establish what we can do in order to help chairs help members and/or future members. I’m looking for someone who doesn’t care much about the DMS politics but wants to help me see this through. Would need to be able to meet in person 1-2x a month with mostly online communication. Extra brownie points for someone who has any sort of technical writing expertise.
My ideas aren’t always the best ideas, but my expectation of someone assisting is that if you challenge my ideas (which I’m more than open to), there’s possibility we may need to meet in middle/compromise. While I love people who always have endless ideas, in this role we need to be able to have a deliverable, not bounce around ideas and nothing come to fruition. Due to the size of DMS and funding, some things aren’t always feasible.
