Descriptions of each committee can be found below:
Communications Committee: Oversee all Women in Development communications such as the website, eNews, and social media. Create email correspondence to members, such as WiD event invitations and programming communications. Social media expertise, strong writing skills, and excellent communication skills are preferred. 3-5 hours is the average monthly time commitment.
Membership Committee: The Membership Committee strives to achieve two goals: to recruit and retain WiD members and to enhance the value of WiD membership. Both depend on a cadre of devoted WiD members personally to reach out to fellow members. WiD members span a wide range of ages and career stages. The Membership Committee assures that there is a variety of program offerings to address the interest of our diverse membership. We are looking for friendly, outgoing committee members who are willing to connect to WiD members at each program to welcome and serve as a resource. We would also like to have a few committee members who are willing to monitor the membership and personally reach out to those whose membership is about to lapse. In addition, we can use women who are willing to look at the list of current WiD members to identify potential new members at all membership levels. Volunteers are expected to attend as many of WiD’s programs and events as possible and to devote 1 – 3 hours per month.
Luncheons Committee: Plan and manage the four annual luncheon series including recruitment and coordination of speakers and tactics for promotion and execution. Strong skills in project management and event planning, as well as a vast fundraising leadership network, are preferred. Less than one hour is the average monthly time commitment.
Special Programs Committee:Provide meaningful programs to mid-level professionals. Strong skills in project management, cold call solicitation, and event planning are required. Less than 1 hour is the average monthly time commitment.
Woman of Achievement Committee: Coordinate the annual Women of Achievement luncheon, which recognizes a woman who has contributed greatly to the field of development. This is the signature annual event of WiD. Seasoned fundraisers who excel in project management, writing, and communication skills are preferred. 5 hours or more is the required monthly time commitment.
