It has been said many, many times that “volunteers are the lifeblood of MWTCA.” To keep an organization our size going, it takes many people who are willing to pitch in and help out. Some are individuals who are elected to offices or appointed to committees. Others just offer to help out at meetings, write articles for The Gristmill, demonstrate at historic sites and museums – all very important in forwarding our mission!!
Here are some of the places you can help.
Serve as a Director
Directors have control of and are responsible for the operation of M-WTCA including such things as stimulating interest in the association, promote Area meetings and approving any additions or revisions to our by-laws and 3-P’s. Not all business but a good way to get to know more about the association and meet others. Please contact our VP of Elections for more information.
Write an Article for The Gristmill
You don’t have to be an English major, or be an experienced writer or have a rare tool collection to be able to contribute something of interest to The Gristmill. Please contact the Editor of The Gristmill who will help and answer any questions you might have. Here is a link to how you can submit an article.
Host or Help With Meetings
Meeting, whether Area (local) or National are where it all happens. Our meeting schedule can be found here which includes contacts. You can help out in many ways to help make our meetings even more enjoyable for all including the hosts. If you want to find out more about holding a meeting, please contact our VP of Membership.
Give Demonstrations or Displays
Seeing how things get done or how things evolved is interesting to those who collect, use and appreciate antique and traditional tools. Those that do these things will probably tell you that they learned something they did not know, met others that share our interests and yes, brought a smile to somebody’s face. You can demonstrate or have a display at our meetings, at historic sites and museums and woodworking and craft shows. Contact meeting hosts for more information or see the next section on Promoting MWTCA.
All kinds of things you can do here. Check out our Promote MWTCA page!!
Become a member of a Committee
All our committee chairman are listed inside the front page of The Gristmill. Contact them directly if you have any interest in helping out or just want to find out more!!
