GSOLE  Call for Volunteers

WHY volunteer your time with GSOLE? Members decide to volunteer for GSOLE for lots of reasons: establishing a professional network, expanding leadership skills, or building a CV or resume. No matter the personal reasons, GSOLE volunteers are vital to the organization’s mission of providing support and resources for educators and administrators in today’s digital learning environments

WHO should volunteer? GSOLE welcomes any member interested in one of our open positions, including those who consider themselves non-experts. You’ll find support and collegiality across the organization. If you’ve always wanted to get more involved, now is the time.

Digital Platforms Manager

  • Monitor the <> email account.

  • Lead one or more online committee meetings each month.

  • Manage and maintain organizational accounts on all our digital platforms (especially Wild Apricot, Google Suites, Zoom, and various social media platforms), including setting up access for other volunteers and members.

  • Coordinate technical support for organizational activities taking place on GSOLE’s digital platforms, including preparing or setting up digital platforms for use by GSOLE programs (e.g., conferences, webinars, etc.) and responding to requests for assistance in accessing, using, and participating in GSOLE’s events, resources, and programs.

  • Work with the Digital GSOLE Committee and Lead Content Curator to establish policies and procedures for using and maintaining GSOLE’s operational data (e.g., member records, invoices, etc.), public and administrative web pages, and digital assets (e.g., archives, articles, etc.).

  • Help update and develop the organization’s website by collaborating with the Lead Content Curator, Membership Officer, Communication Officer, and assistant Content Curators, and other officers or committee chairs.

  • Research and recommend the acquisition of new digital technologies to further GSOLE’s overall mission of inclusive online literacy education.
