Volunteer at Hawai'i Craftsmen

As a volunteer organization, Hawaiʻi Craftsmen relies on the active participation of its members in giving their time to helping Board members and Program Chairs with a wide range of tasks. Many volunteer opportunities can be done remotely; hence, neighbor island members can also contribute their time and expertise. Please consider volunteering as a coordinator or member on any of the committees listed below: 

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE COMMITTEE 

Committee members should have interest/experience in membership development and will assist in membership outreach, building greater active membership, and soliciting updates of member contact and interests information. 

HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE 

Committee members should have interest/experience in hospitality organization, such as arranging hospitality logistics, setting up tables with refreshments and snacks, and serving food and beverages at our program receptions, openings, and ad hoc events. 

VOLUNTEER COMMITTEE 

Committee members should have interest/experience in organizing volunteers; gathering data on volunteer skills, interests, and expertise; and working with program chairs and event coordinators to contact, solicit, and schedule volunteers. 

FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE 

Committee members should have an interest/experience in fundraising, particularly in working with donors and corporate sponsors. Members will be tasked with developing sponsorship packages, with outreach to potential donors and corporate sponsors, and with soliciting gifts in kind and/or monetary donations for programs and events. 

GRAPHICS DESIGN COMMITTEE

Committee members should have interest/experience in graphic design and will be tasked with working with the board of directors, graphic design professionals, and a communications team to develop a new organization logo and visual branding to be used from 2018 onward. 

OTHER VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
