We welcome everyone that wants to help, even something small is very appreciated. However once help commitment is made for a specific task or role, since we are a small group, it is crucial that not only the volunteer delivers on that commitment but also be responsive on its progress to the lead. If unforeseen circumstances prevent a volunteer to deliver, the volunteer lead needs to know asap to be able to take alternate measure.
