GFOABC IS YOUR ASSOCIATION! We are here to help you serve your communities to the best of your ability. However, we would be nowhere without the ongoing support of our membership sharing their experience and expertise. Here are some of the ways that you can get involved:
Throughout the year we offer over a dozen workshops taught by both paid and volunteer instructors. During each workshop we like to pair a local government practitioner with the lead instructor to provide a relevant and practical perspective on the materials. This volunteer will be required to get familiar with the material and spend the day with the lead instructor. They may present a portion of the material. This is a great opportunity to practice your presentation skills and discover whether you would like to teach future workshops.
Develop programs and workshops
We need people to assist with workshop development and material review. They may advise on or create content, review material as it is produced or sit in on the pilot offering of the workshop.
Serve on a committee
GFOABC has three standing committees: Education, Communications and External Relations. The work of each committee is tied directly to our strategic plan and changes each year as we strive towards achieving our strategic goals. We are always looking for volunteers who have an interest in these areas.
Contribute an artcile to the Dollars & Sense Newsletter
If you have always wanted to have your work published, here is your chance! We encourage local practitioners to share their knowledge or experience with the membership through the quarterly newsletter. We are happy to guide you through the process.
