TNN Chapter Leader Application
Thank you for your interest in being one of The Nomadic Network's Chapter Leaders! We are building a global network of travel enthusiasts, and we can’t do that alone.
For The Nomadic Network, we’re looking for strong leaders with a passion for travel and bringing people together. We know that while taking on something like being a Chapter Leader is a commitment, it also has a lot of benefits. The one we hope lights you up the most is getting to be a part of something much bigger than yourself, something that brings people together around the love of traveling.
You’re not alone. We are here to help you lead your chapter and make sure that you have what you need to successfully host events for the travelers in your city.
We’re looking for especially enthusiastic travel lovers and community leaders to host events in their area.
-- Passionate about travel.
-- Passionate about bringing the travel lovers in your community together.
-- Committed to hosting at least 8 meet-ups each year in your area (ideally, we would love you to host them once monthly, so 12).
-- Over 18 years old (at least one leader in each city must be above the local legal drinking age).
-- Understand that our mission is to help people travel more (better, cheaper, and longer) and be able to represent that idea on our behalf.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
-- Why do I want to bring The Nomadic Network and travel-related events to my area?
-- What kind of impact could hosting these events have on my city and the travel-lovers (like me) in it?
-- Do I know people who would be eager to help me create these events?
-- What inspiring traveler(s) would I love to see speak in my community?
-- Why would I make a great leader?
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO TAKE ON BEING A TNN CHAPTER LEADER?
You will run your cities’ TNN Chapter. You’ll let us know what you need and how TNN should look in your city. You (along with your local team) will scout and pick great venues for TNN events every month. You’ll also get to choose inspiring local speakers who will talk about travel to your community, widening their perspective on what’s possible (we provide help when doing all of this). The team at TNN and the Events Director will be there for you every step of the way... but you’re the local leader, expert, and representative for The Nomadic Network.
HOW LONG ARE YOU COMMITTING TO BE A CHAPTER LEADER?
We're certainly hoping to have you for a year, ideally. (It's really not that long if you think about it!) Chapter-based groups thrive with consistency. We hope that, eventually, chapters meet once a month (so 12 times a year), however, if you skip a month here and there - that's okay. So the minimum number of events for the calendar year would be 8.
SETTING UP A TNN EVENT INCLUDES:
-- Finding a venue.
-- Sometimes finding a speaker or presenter most months (we can help with this).
-- Sharing about the event with your community (and on our website) at least 2 weeks before the event happens.
-- Documenting the event for the rest of us to see how it went!
-- Communicating with TNN staff every two weeks.
-- Plan on spending about 5-10 hours each month planning (and attending) TNN events in your community.
WILL YOU GET PAID?
This is a volunteer position. However, by taking on a Chapter Leader position, you get a ton of benefits:
-- Opportunity to lead and level up your travel expert status in your community.
-- Opportunity to connect with inspiring speakers and presenters
-- Improved leadership and organizational skills
-- Being a part of the Nomadic Matt family
-- A group of travel-obsessed friends in your area
-- Free access to TNN events in any other region that you’re visiting
