Out on the Shelf
10 Carden Street, Guelph
Our organization has a Marketing & Communications Committee that handles all promotions and community outreach, including poster design and distribution, writing the quarterly newsletter, managing the website and social media accounts, and developing branding. There are several volunteers on this committee (e.g., social media coordinator, graphic designer), and the Marketing & Communications Chair oversees these volunteers. The chair also manages timelines for promotional materials and ensures that promotional materials are in line with our mission and mandate, attends monthly board meetings and relays information back to their committee's volunteers, and holds monthly meetings for their committee's volunteers to maintain engagement and to keep everyone up to date on the organization's needs.
Out on the Shelf
The Pride Committee is Out On The Shelf's largest committee and is responsible for organizing Guelph Pride Week every spring. This is a big job, and we have found that it runs best with two co-chairs rather than one. The Pride Committee takes a short break in June following our Pride Week, but otherwise runs year round with planning meetings, acquiring sponsorships, managing volunteers, and promoting in the community.  
At least one co-chair must sit on the Out On The Shelf board of directors. It is preferable that one co-chair manages bureaucratic details (like budget and policy implementation) while the other co-chair manages the human factors (like volunteer coordination and promotions within the community). Generally individuals fall into either of these categories based on pre-existing skill sets and interests. Sponsorship acquisition and planning the Pride Week events can be shared between the co-chairs, as well as committee volunteers.  
Please feel free to apply with a friend or colleague if you think you would work well as a team give these responsibilities, or apply independently if you think you'd like to take on the job on your own or would like for us to find you a co-chair.
