Volunteers

The Hospitality Committee (better known as the Coffee Committee) orders the coffee and donuts the day before our meetings, picks up the coffee and donuts on meeting day, and sets the food up that morning, then cleans up after the meeting.

This committee could use another couple of volunteers. With only one meeting a month, it’s not a large time commitment.

The Education Committee plans the courses to be taught for the 2015-2016 year at different locations--- three are already on the books, and other educational initiatives including coaching of Boy Scouts on earning the Genealogy Merit Badge are being added. The Committee can always use someone with a teaching background.

The Communication Technology Committee maintains the website and assists the Society in communicating with its members and others through the various online platforms that are available. We also explore new ways that the work of the society may be augmented through the website and related tools available through the internet.

We are looking for members to help in a variety of ways.

You don’t need to be an expert in website design or computer systems (though if you were, we would love to have you!). We need help in the following areas:

            ·  Maintaining and updating our Facebook Page

            ·  Maintaining and updating our Twitter Feed

            ·  Assist in keeping the website up to date.

            ·  Assist in the maintenance of the Society’s blog

            ·  Assistance in identifying and integrating new technologies into existing platforms

Some of these tasks (such as updating Facebook or Twitter) only take a few minutes, 2-3 times a week. Others may be an hour commitment a week or even less. Chair: David Frederici (davidf@capecodgenealogy.org).

The Research Library Committee serves to advise the Librarian about administering the collections and staffing of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society Library, located within the Dennis Public Library in Dennisport.
