Many of you offered to volunteer. This is wonderful! Unfortunately, many people did not leave their name (this may have been by accident as the survey was intentionally anonymous, so no personal information was captured). If this sounds like you, please e-mail Nan Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteering is vital to the success or failure of the TJAA. Volunteers are the lifeblood of not just the TJAA but all non-profit organizations. So, the next time you see an email asking for volunteers to help plan and run events, PLEASE step forward!
The board is a relatively small group for such a vibrant, active organization. Not only do we lack the the woman and man power to create, design, plan, organize and execute programming, we do not want to.
The Board exists to serve you - our members. We want and need your input and participation. The Board is here to help lead and steer the TJAA towards meeting its goals and missions, but ultimately it is YOU - our members - who will make the difference on whether they are achieved.
