volunteer

Why volunteer for WIF Seattle? Two compelling reasons: it’s fun and can get you more work.

Beyond making a difference, volunteering shows your colleagues what you can do. It allows you to build relationships and trust, and that’s what business is all about.

So what are you waiting for? WIF Seattle is an active organization with many committees in a variety of arenas. Pick one you’re interested in and contact the board member in charge from the list below.

Unexpected things happen.

Fundraising
As a worthy non-profit organization, WIF Seattle is seeking people with knowledge about corporate sponsorship, fundraising, and grant writing to become involved by joining the Fundraising Committee. Please contact President Virginia Bogert at virgina@laughingdogpictures.com and Laura Jean Cronin minadog10@hotmail.com.

Membership
Nothing is more vital to an organization’s success than the involvement of its members and the growth of the membership base itself. Join in our efforts to grow WIF Seattle. 
Please contact Tracey Shrier at traceyshrier@gmail.com

Events
Special events are not only fun, they’re an integral part of member involvement. They make the difference between an organization that’s really going someplace and one that languishes. Help the Events Committee in all aspects of event planning – venue selection, speakers, decorating, legwork on-site, and more. Contact Isabella Price isabellalprice@gmail.com for The Second Tuesday Events. 



Workshops & Seminars
One of WIF Seattle's missions is to educate and to that end we offer opportunities for you to hone your skills and learn more about the craft, art, and the business of filmmaking. We want to hear your workshop ideas! Contact Workshop Chair Lisa B. Hammond.

Nell Shipman Awards
The Nell Award Ceremonies have been fabulous events over the years, crowned by the 2006 event with special guest Bonnie Bedelia. The preparation for this ceremony is grand and needs the talents of an event planner, including event design, planning, research, set up, on-site help. To make this event work, we need at least 12 volunteers. For more information, please contact Virginia Bogert virginia@laughingdogpictures.com.
