These are some programs offered by the Volunteer Resource Committee:

Meet & Greet
We invite WSO Reps, Committees Chairs and Trusted Servants to attend this fellowship opportunity, held prior (or sometimes in place of) each monthly Board Teleconference.
We provide a casual space to ask questions about volunteering, while promoting healthy committee experiences. Details may be found here: Meet & Greet flier

Consider Service at WSO
Join us, please, to gather insights into service at WSO. In this brief program (about 100 minutes), you will meet volunteers describing their individual service journeys and WSO committee leaders explaining their purpose and targets. We will welcome you to opportunities to be of service. Here is the Consider Service flier.

A WSO Field Trip
Join friends, new and old, as we experience the meeting proceedings of a WSO committee. We will learn about their projects and processes. You may even be inspired to join the committee. The specific committees and working groups have yet to be determined. We will fit into their meeting schedule. Check the WSO Field Trip flier for more information. And write to us if you have a specific committee you would like to learn about.
