I’m most involved in social services at this time because of the work projects I’m involved in. I spend about 100-150 hours a month in these types of civic organizations. Rotary, about 4 hours/month plus events and Toastmasters, about 8 hours/month.
The line between paid work and being there simply because I’m interested is blurred. In my paid work, I’m very involved in social services and also with educational organizations. I’m somewhat involved in all of these different types of organizations, except environmental.
8. What is the name of the one organization on the list in which you are most involved and committed?… Were you invited to become involved or did you approach the organization and volunteer your services? Are you paid or unpaid? On average, how many hours a month do you give to this organization?
I’m most involved in social services in the county. I was originally hired for a short-term project about four years ago and have continued to work on social service-related projects for the County. I was invited to work with the County after my work with United Way. On average, between 100-150 hours/month. Just about everything I do is somehow connected to this work.
9. I’d like to learn more about your involvement in this organization by asking four questions:
First, describe the leadership role that you play within the organization.
The leadership role that I play is as project coordinator and facilitator of the Nevada County Community Leadership Institute (NCCLI).
Second, in what ways do you believe you have most helped the organization?
I think one of the valuable things I bring to this and other organizations is my variety of experience, especially coaching, to know our values and hold a vision of what we want to create. I empower groups & teams by helping them to focus on a vision and hold it. When we do this we’re capable of anything.Download Article 1K Club
