Call for Volunteers!
We are looking for someone to fill the post of Research Director. Like most things in this life, it is what you make it. In general, the role of Research Director is responsible for:
- Representing our chapter on Research Director web conferences
- Staying abreast of current industry trends, technologies and techniques
How much time does it take?
- Sharing those trends, technologies and techniques with the members through LinkedIn group discussions, Newsletter articles and chapter website content
That depends on you, really. We would like something contributed from the Research Director at least monthly.
But I don't consider myself an expert of that caliber.
No one does. That's our nature as people. The truth is, though, if you're a member of a professional organization or hold a professional certification, then you are just not giving yourself enough credit. Seriously. If you monitor the trade chatter on the web, via email distribution lists and so on, then you will no doubt see things that interest you. Well, if it interests you, then it will likely interest someone else! So share it!
Can I step down if I don't feel comfortable after I get into it?
Absolutely. It needs to be something you enjoy doing--at least on some level. If it feels like drudgery or you're just not comfortable int he role, then don't do it. No harm, no foul.
How do I get started?
Contact Bill Wells or any of the other chapter leaders and let them know you're interested.
