Ben Woelk Receives STC Distinguished Chapter Service Award | STC Rochester Chapter.

Ben Woelk receiving the DCSAI was truly humbled and honored to receive the Society for Technical Communication‘s Distinguished Chapter Service Award (DCSA) for my work over the last few years with the Rochester Chapter.

The citation on the award reads:

Volunteering with STC Rochester has provided an opportunity to gain leadership skills and discover my talents. I encourage you to serve in your community.

Get On Board! Entraining Volunteers

Category:Infosec Communicator,Leadchange,Leadership,Lessons Learned,Presentations,STC,STC Rochester,Summit Tags : 

I’m delivering the presentation below as part of a progression at Summit 2013 Leadership Day in Atlanta. Summit Leadership Day provides STC community leaders with the knowledge and guidance they need to lead successful communities, both geographic chapters and SIGs.

Volunteers are the heart of the community. They enable us to offer meaningful services to our members. However, getting volunteers can be challenging. Issuing a cattle call doesn’t usually lead to good results. Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y all have different priorities that you must consider when recruiting them.

Personally, I’ve found volunteering in leadership in my local chapter (Rochester) to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional career. Volunteering has stretched me and equipped me as a better leader. I don’t have a magic formula. However, STC Rochester fills 8-10 council positions each year. That’s more than 10% of the community engaged in leadership.

This presentation provides strategies and tactics for recruiting and retaining volunteers.
