It seems counter-intuitive to ask for a volunteer to manage volunteers, but
we need you!

It's really more than managing volunteers. We need someone (or several of
you together) to design a process for us, from how we put out a request for
participants, how we funnel people into the right positions, and once there,
how do we arm them and ensure they're spending their time where they want to
be. This is not a new (nor sole) challenge for orgs like ours, but we need
someone to take a designer's eye and find great ways for IxDA (run solely by
volunteers) to be sustainable in the coming years, regardless of the people
at the helm.

Have you been looking for a design challenge to sink your teeth into? Take
this one on, and we will be forever grateful benefiting from your thoughts.

Let me know off-list if you are interested in working through this problem.
Your involvement could be simply to think about this, or it could extend
beyond to actually supporting the process in action.

President, IxDA

As a new member, I love all the info I am getting and learning from your organization. I would love to be involved in some way. I am a Art Director and UI Designer.
