You've heard the old quip, "Whaddaya waitin' for, an invitation?" Does that sound like it's aimed at you? Maybe it is! If so, consider this your invitation to help out on any MCAI project. And, NO... you don't need to be a member to volunteer...
Of course, we're looking for a very committed (and very honest) person to become our new Treasurer, but there are lots of other ways you can help the LA/OC Chapter of MCAI serve the professional community. Ways that don't require heavy lifting - or long term commitment.
For instance, we can always use help picking up food and beverages for our monthly meetings. Got any good ideas for topics or guest speakers? Then maybe you want to join our program committee. How about helping at the door to greet folks! Other committees looking for help include our Charity, Sponsorship and Membership committees.
MCAI has a few large projects that have become annual events that always need more hands. The annual September MediaPro Mixer and the late Spring MediaProCamp are two examples.
Good with the web or perhaps a writer? Then help out with www.socalmediapros.org The Chapter website and newsletter always need organizers, editors and content contributors.
As you can see, because we are a true member-run association-despite the fact we are international in scope-we can always use help, whether or not you are a member. So don't wait for an invitation to get involved. Just contact one of us at a monthly meeting or through our website www.socalmediapros.org There's no better way to meet people and make friends than by working side by side with them! And there isn't anyone in our industry that doesn't need more friends! That's what MCAI is all about!
