Join a Committee!
The Buffalo RPCV Group offers a number of committees to join that will help the group grow, discover volunteer opportunities, conduct fun social events, manage finances, and spread the word about the Peace Corps throughout Western New York. The full list of the committees is below with descriptions. If you are interested in joining a committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your email, and which committee you would like to be a part of.
Finance Committee: The Finance Committee manages all monetary accounts while actively encouraging donations, seeking opportunities to donate to local nonprofits and organizations, and seeking out major gifts from companies or organizations in the Western New York area. If you have a background in accounting, finance, or procuring donations, this is the committee for you.
Publicity Committee: The Publicity Committee employs social media and personal/professional networks to leverage volunteer opportunities and potential donations as well. This committee is also on the lookout for Rotary Club members and RPCVs who have Rotary Club connections. This committee will help increase the Buffalo RPCV's brand awareness by using all available platforms and partnerships. If you have experience with social media marketing and advertising or public affairs, this it the committee for you.
Events Committee: Does planning and executing events or volunteer opportunities sound like something that you are interested in? This is the committee that does just that. From social events to large group gatherings to new restaurant tastings to local volunteering, the Events Committee conducts all of it. They work concomitantly with the Publicity and Finance Committees.
Website Committee: This Committee is dedicated to the upkeep of the website in the areas of Membership, News updates, Design, and more. If you have experience in growing memberships, working with websites, or website design, your help would be greatly appreciated on the Website Committee.
