We have four general categories of volunteer:

- All-purpose Volunteers
Board of Directors Members
of the Board of Directors are elected by the membership each year at an
annual meeting, which is usually held in mid-July. The Board of
Directors is a working board, with each member expected to take on some
small, additional volunteer task. Each member is expected to make a
minimum commitment of two years, and each position requires 7 - 10 hours
WICE also has an open position for a Managing Director. The Managing
Director attends board meetings and works with the board to ensure that
action items stay on track and that the short-term activities of WICE align
with WICE's longer-term goals and objectives.
Department Head Volunteers
WICE has six departments: Membership, Programs, Marketing, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Development.
of the six departments requires a leader, or Department Head, those
leaders need to have some level of executive skill. Department Heads are
expected to make a minimum commitment of at least one year, and each
position requires 7 - 10 hours a week.
WICE currently has openings for a Marketing Director and a Development Director.

- Work in the Membership Department as an analyst;
- Work in the Information Technology Department managing some aspect of WICE's IT systems;

- When we have a pétanque game, we might need someone to help keep score;
- When we set up a stand at an all-day marketing event, we might need someone to help man the table.
