Thanks for the info. I'm contacting now. I must say for over a year I have tried to volunteer for various committees and just end up starting my own actions. I hope people get back with me. I am sending my CV and my enthusiasm and hope my efforts to volunteer garners a response.
I've set up a meeting with you but also wanted to reply here on the thread in case others have similar questions. Our forums are very active at
NAEYC's annual conference --this year the forums presented 32 sessions and there were 23 business meetings (where forum members come together to talk about issues and also plan for the next year).
But we are in transition and working toward doing more collaboration online through hello.naeyc.org. Some forums have hosted online book clubs, webinar series with experts in the field, and an online mentoring project. We have some new forums and a handful of existing forums with facilitator leadership opportunities. So, depending on the forum the activity level is going to vary in visibility in this online space.
While we love that some forums have active facebook pages (this is a great way to reach potential members!) we would also like to encourage more interest forum conversation and activity on hello.naeyc.org.
I encourage others to ask questions and continue this discussion -- for instance, I think the facilitators would like to know what kinds of online activities as members would you want to participate in?
If you are interested in learning about Interest Forum facilitator opportunities please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
