Can You Help?
Something relatively new is our ability to webcast the meetings. If you can attend a meeting from across the country, or world, is there more incentive to join? For example, I have attended several Niagara Branch as well as two Ottawa Branch meetings this year without leaving my house. I can sit there in my pyjamas and sip a cup of tea while enjoying the presentation. I miss out on the juice and cookies but one has to make sacrifices. :-)
Another way to reach out to potential members is by running courses in likely locations i.e. seniors centres and community centres. We need to consider adding a new member to the Board who would be an Education Coordinator and help to arrange presentations on the hobby to various groups. We have a number of people who would be happy to talk to groups. But I have neither the time nor ability to arrange things like this.
These are just a couple of the tasks that need volunteers if we are to keep Ottawa Branch and the Ontario Genealogical Society functioning into the future. Can you help? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
