Volunteer

ELLA provides rewarding volunteer opportunities!

ELLA Volunteers

ELLA is always looking for volunteers in all of its operational areas.

Do you have expertise in planning and implementing programs? Promoting organizations? Celebrating volunteers? Working with computers or financials?  We need your ideas and skills to provide exciting programs in future sessions.

Current Openings

The ELLA Board consists of volunteers who are interested in planning, promoting and supporting ELLA’s annual online and in-person educational offerings.  The Board of Directors consists of 10-16 members elected at the ELLA  AGM.  The Executive Committee (President, Vice President, Past President, Treasurer and Secretary) and the Chairs of ELLA Committees meet monthly to oversee all aspects of ELLA operations.  Board members collaborate in planning and implementing innovative ideas as we grow ELLA. 

ELLA Committees are groups of dedicated, committed individuals who undertake their work with energetic enthusiasm in developing our excellent programs. The Committee Chair coordinates the activities of the committee and provides liaison between the Committee and Board.  We have opportunities for new Chairs this year.

Operations Committee develops and maintains the information and technology platforms to support ELLA functions.  Whether it is assisting members, or dealing with registration and memberships or consulting with our excellent website service provider, Dianne Eustace has been supported by a capable team who are ready to fully support and transition the incoming Chair.

Contributions Committee is an exciting new opportunity to help ELLA acquire and retain new funding sources.  A draft strategy is in place that involves attracting new financial contributions, recognizing donors, making application for grants, disbursing grants and scholarships.  By getting in on the ground floor of this initiative, you will help build the ELLA “value case” to attract sponsors and donors which will be an important part of growing our community visibility/impact and ensuring our long term viability.

For more information on these opportunities, or to informally explore options for future involvement on the Board, contact any of the Board Recruitment and Development members: Brian Sawyer, [email protected]  Ernie Hodges, [email protected]  or Walter Archer, [email protected].


ELLA Committees are grateful for new volunteers throughout the year, but our immediate needs are in the areas of Marketing and Communications, and Volunteer Recruitment and Recognition.
