Volunteering With AWA

We can only do what we do with the participation of all of our wonderful volunteers! As a volunteer-run organization, they each give freely of their time to provide fun events and activities for us all to participate in, as well as working in the office, producing the Bamboo Telegraph magazine, and serving on the Board. 

As a member, you are strongly encouraged to volunteer your time to keep the AWA running smoothly. Whether you are interested in learning a new skill or continuing to use a well-honed talent, AWA has a place for you. Please note you must be an AWA member to volunteer for any of these positions.

Thank you to all of our 2020 volunteers for your joy, passion and commitment to the AWA. Enjoy this video that celebrates YOU!

For questions or more information, please contact our Editor in Chief, Tori Nelson at editor@awasingapore.org.

Communications - Copy Editor(s)
We are also in need of one to two additional copy editors to proof-read each article and review other details before the magazine is posted online. Time commitment is flexible and can fit around a person’s schedule as long as writing or editing can be done before the magazine’s deadline. For questions or more information, please contact our Editor in Chief, Tori Nelson at editor@awasingapore.org.

Sports - Adventurers Chair
NEW GROUP! The AWA Adventurers Chair will be in charge of organizing activities for fellow members that are little fun, a little funky, a little out of the norm. If you have a thirst for adventure, and don't mind getting wet, dirty, or hearing the occasional "You did what?!" This position is for you! Kayaking, rock-climbing, archery, axe-throwing – each month the sky's the limit! Please email sports@awasingapore.org to find out more or to volunteer.

Special Interest - Member Talks Chair
We are looking for a chair for our AWA Member Talks activity. Our members have a huge range of interests, experience and expertise, so each month we invite an AWA member to talk (currently via Zoom) on a topic they are passionate about. We have had talks on Sign Language, town planning, NLP - there is no limit on the topic, the speaker just needs to be an AWA member.
The role of the chair is to find speakers amongst our membership, create the events on our website and on Zoom, email participants and introduce the speaker at each talk. please email office@awasingapore.org if you are interested in this role!

Special Interest - Choir Director
The AWA International Choir has been a part of community outreach for over fifteen years.  Our group sings popular songs and traditional tunes in English, Chinese, Japanese, and Malay.  We perform for senior centers, shut-in and hospice patients across Singapore, encouraging audience participation with musical instruments, bells, and singalong.  Music is arranged for Soprano 1 and 2 and Alto voices.  The Choir Director would work with the President of the choir, Treasurer and Outreach Coordinators to decide repertoire, rehearsal schedule, performance dates and end-of-season concert dates.  Previous experience in directing greatly preferred, piano skills very useful.  Please email Helena A Cochrane, Choir Chair at intlchoir@awasingapore for more information.

Membership - Retention Specialist
The Retention Specialist focuses on retaining members of the AWA. Her primary duties will be following up via email and phone with our members who are up for renewal. She should be comfortable speaking with members about how their time has been with the AWA.  She should be comfortable with encouraging members to renew their membership, as well as discuss further with members why they may have declined.  The Retention Specialist would be in frequent contact with the Vice President to discuss membership numbers. Please email vicepresident@awasingapore.org for more information.

Membership - Engagement Specialist
The Engagement Specialist serves as a concierge of sorts to newer AWA members who have yet to engage in any activities. Her primary role would be to get in touch with members who have appeared to not attend any activity within several months of joining the AWA. She should feel comfortable talking about the range of activities that AWA has to offer. When needed, the engagement specialist would connect the new member with the appropriate chair to encourage involvement in an activity. The Engagement Specialist would be in frequent contact with the Vice President to discuss strategies and different ways for members to be involved.  Please email vicepresident@awasingapore.org for more information.
