Leadership TeamEach city with a ChickTech chapter has a volunteer leadership team. This team guides what types of events/programming they provide and creates the community we're striving for. If you're looking for project or event management experience, are passionate about getting more women/diversity into tech, and love working with people, this team is for you. It also looks great on a resume! :) Preferred time commitment: 1 year.

Description
3
General ManagerA co-lead with the Operations Manager, this program is your baby! You'll create and guide the leadership team, pick up pieces that are dropped, make connections and strategic partnerships, help with brainstorming, and come up with event ideas with the rest of the leadership team. Think of yourself as the CEO of the ChickTech chapter in your city, and you'll be pretty close! (Note: one per city)
4
Operations ManagerWorking in close collaboration with the General Manager, you'll be the COO of the chapter. You'll make sure the team is working smoothly, keep everyone on task and moving forward, and co-lead the chapter!
5
LogisticsOversee logistics for all events. Make sure each event has a logistics coordinator who gets the girls to the event at the venue of your choosing, feeds them while they're there, and makes sure the workshops have all the stuff they need to succeed (power strips, computers, ventilation, etc). If you don't have a logistics coordinator for a particular event, you step in and fill the logistics coordinator role yourself.
6
Participant EngagementRecruit participants (through the nomination method) and keep them up to date on what's going on. Remind them, cajole them, encourage them, and give them all the info they need.
7
MarketingLet the community know that we're here and we need their support to succeed. Convince people to come to the tech show, get PR opportunities, post our event info to as many places as you possibly can to get the word out. Work with the fundraising coordinator to craft great messages to raise funds. Keep the website up to date.
8
Fundraising Create and manage a team that finds funding to create a successful, sustainable program from a variety of places.
9
Mentor Program As the leader of the mentor program, you'll build a team that works with the volunteer coordinator to find people excited about mentoring a girl for the year, trains and interviews mentors, and plans events (with the rest of the leadership team) that have a focus on the mentor-mentee relationship. You'll also get to guide your team through any issues and concerns as they arise.
10
Activities/WorkshopsYou'll work with the volunteer coordinator to create teams around workshop and activity ideas. You'll make sure that each one is meeting the requirements, is keeping deadlines, and has the volunteers they need to succeed! You'll also communicate with the Volunteer Coordinator to replace volunteers who are not following through on their responsibilities or are creating other problems.
11
WorkshopsWorkshops include software, hardware, "maker", and other projects that highlight the other fields where technology is vital (for example, green energy, medical, films).
12
Monthly EventsChoose partners for monthly events throughout the year to broaden the participants' network in the tech industry.
13
Misc ActivitiesPlan other activities as needed for the girls (including lunchtime and ice breaker activities). Find and acquire interesting prizes that the girls can win on the second day raffle. Coordinate with Fundraising Coordinator to get raffle prizes donated by companies.

15
RecruitmentRecruit volunteers in general and for specific needs as requested by the other members of the leadership team. Go to networking events, talk at companies, etc. Work with outreach, fundraising, and the mentor program leads to make sure companies aren't being contacted multiple times for different things. Get people to fill out the volunteer form (and make sure the form is right for your area).
16
Placement/RetentionGet the volunteers into specific roles based on their info in the volunteer form, what is needed, and interviews. When they're done with a role, follow up with them and see what they want to do next!
