Guides and Wanderers!

Wanderers to the world of ACW need YOU as their guide. You’ve been with ACW long enough to help them discover how we can help them use their talents and bring their ideas to realities, making change in their lives and in the world.

It only takes a little commitment and a few steps!

To be a guide, email Barbara that you’re interested.

Guides’ Responsibilities:

1)    Find out what your wanderer is interested in and why they joined ACW. What are their short term and long term goals? (donation, community involvement, fellowship, exhibition, museum-focused, music, theater, etc).

2)    Email a few times (check in) and commit to no more than one meeting in person if necessary/preferred. Share what you do and what you’ve learned and what you enjoy and know about ACW. (how to navigate the website, Discord, facebook page, and info on being on the task force or Glitter Renaissance, and how to write a project proposal, if necessary, which is a document on our website). (It’s just a matter of pointing out WHERE these things are and that they are available to them, you don’t have to be fully familiar with all these programs yourself, but can point them in the right direction to whom to ask their questions).

3)    The goal is to get them to the right intersection to which they came whether that’s a project/committee/group and help them discover the benefits of the organization and what works best for them. It’s also an opportunity for us all to meet more members in our organization and build a more welcoming fellowship.

4)    If they don’t want to be an active member at this time, it’s okay. We just want to make sure we are serving all our new members and they know what we have to offer them and what talents they might be able to share with us. Together we are stronger!

5) Train them to be a guide for others joining, if necessary. You can have as many wanderers as you can handle. Most won’t need more than an e-mail or two from you.

Training for the guides.
