Volunteer List - get these folks into action!
« on: March 14, 2003, 11:03:17 pm »

If you are willing to undertake an occasional bite-sized mission that will help the FSP, here's a thread where you can sound off, make your preferences known and get into action. Doing so is not a commitment on your part; you can go in as deep or as shallow as you want. But it will provide a road map for other Porcupines looking for help with projects.

__________________________________________

To announce your potential willingness to volunteer, please reply to this post answering as few or as many of the questions below as you like. The more you answer the more likely you are to receive requests that meet your needs.

{E-mail or best way to get in touch with you? (List primary and alternate if you can) }

{Name(s) which you are most commonly known in the FSP? }

{ Your geographic location? (be as general or specific as you like) }

{What kinds of volunteer work would you most enjoy doing for us? }    (Examples: Programming, website work, writing or performing music, work where you are around other Porcupines, work where you are alone, work involving e-mail or writing, work involving the telephone, serving as a greeter or contact person for incoming members, public/media relations, publicity stunts, accounting/treasury, member recruiting, work with your local FSP group, lobbying, fundraising, manning a booth, net-based FSP radio show, FSP video production, brainstorming, relocation help, research, article writing, foreign recruiting or other foreign issues, legal support, event planning, event assistance, entertainment, speaking,  introducing a speaker, polling, leading a volunteer workgroup, political platform-building, phone or phone bank work, business relations, business recruiting, think-tank work, photography, bookwriting, desktop publishing, graphic design, printing, editing articles, helping with mailings, membership database work, monitoring a govt. or regulatory agency, use of your business or home as a chapter meeting place, working registration at a meeting, helping determine political endorsements. Please add your suggestions for additional examples)

_______________________________________

Notes:

Warning:  Sometimes our web forum times people out while they are answering this survey (or posting in general).  This and other forum problems sometimes kill whatever you write in the message field.  Best thing to do is write all forum posts in your word processor then copy them to the forum's message field.
 
Please be sure to include the {prompts} in your reply, but ideally it's best not to copy anything else from the questionnaire.  

If you are one of those *recruiting* from this list (as I hope many of you will) please ensure for the volunteer's sake that their suggested mission generally adheres to the Helen Little Standards They're working for free, so it's the least you can do for them.

This thread is only for announcing and detailing your willingness to volunteer. If you have comments regarding the thread itself or anything else let's discuss them over at
this other thread.

Of course, you don't have to wait for someone to "volunteer" you before you get into action.  Just drop by  http://freestateproject.org/help.htm for a list of missions that need accomplishing; you can run out and do one on your own initiative.

If there are no objections, sometime we may enter the info you give us into the not-yet-existent Activist Activator database.  Whether here or there, the information is yours to change or delete at the time of your choosing.

Thanks so much, all of you who are answering the questionnaire!

- Dada

{Other Comments:}

I notice that most Americans do not realize how much of their freedoms they have lost.  The government has carefully orchestrated the "frog boiling" process and incrementally ratchets down on freedoms.  People for the most part don't notice or consider these government encroachments and accept them as "necessary evils" they must endure to be safe and secure.  What usually wakes someone up is encouraging them to get their CCW pistol permit in the state.  Then they realize in at least one way, the government has jumped the tracks of constitutional restraint.  Most folks in this state aren't even interested in the tools of self defence.  HOW DO YOU REACH THEM?  They are safe in their ivory towers (so they believe) and feel the government is only doing them a useful service.  I meet many people in whom the flame of Liberty is all but extinguished.  As long as they can make their six figure incomes and don't get too many speeding tickets, they are the "happy frog in the pot" slowly being boiled as the heat increases and their Liberties are gone forever.  The FSP in my opinion is the last best chance at attaining Liberty in a peaceful manner.  Lets roll!

 E-mail:dozerluver@hotmail.com
  "Name" vermass
  Location: Western MA
   What can I do? : Work with local FSP. Other than that I don't really know. I have very little spare time am currently working a 12 day stretch with 15 shifts in it! If someone gets ahold of me we'll see what I can do!
   Easier: Clear organization as I am pressed for time.
   Harder: Poor leadership/organization as i cannot stand to waste time.
   Reasons for volunteering: Socialize with other FSPer's, get the FPS message out. A feeling of "contributing to the cause".
   Strengths: I can generally converse with just about anyone.
   Weaknesses: Even though I understand how a freer society works I do not allways have counter-arguments availiable. I have limited experience with this ideology.
    No foreign languages
    Other interest: Animal lover (especially dogs and the history of dogs with man), Working out with weights/keeping in shape, Small farms, homesteading, independent living/living off-the-grid, Firearms, martial arts/self defense, Healthcare and unconventional remedies, I'm a geriatric nurse (LPN), politics

{E-mail or best way to get in touch with you? (List primary and alternate if you can) }

email to varrin at sugargroup dot net is best.  The address posted here (varrin@varrin.com) works also, and slowest but also effective is an im here.


{Name(s) which you are most commonly known in the FSP? }

Varrin.  I'm the only one I know so we can be on a first name basis Wink

{ Your geographic location? (be as general or specific as you like) }

Usually all over the world (Cyprus at the moment).  I live in central California.

{ What kinds of volunteer work would you most enjoy doing for us? }    

On the list provided, these would be best:
performing music, work where I am around other Porcupines, work where I am alone, work involving email and/or writing, work involving the telephone, greeting or contacting incoming members, work with my local FSP group, brainstorming, research, article writing, speaking, introducing a speaker, political platform building, editing articles, helping determine political endorsements.

Not on the list but also of potential interest: running for office (again), providing my services as a pilot for the transporting of all things Porcupine, developing an organization focused on persuading the Christian community to embrace liberty.

{ Any general characteristics that tend to make a project easier for you to volunteer for? }

Schedule flexability.  My schedule is difficult to predict.  I am often out of town and out of the country.  I am occasionally away from email and/or this forum.

{ Any general characteristics that would make a project harder for you to volunteer for? }

Fixed schedules.

{ Which of these are your biggest motivations for volunteering (these are from Helen Little's book):

- Sense of Duty ("If I don't do it who will?")
- Service/Interest in cause


{ Foreign languages: }

None.

{ Other interests: }

Would like to learn the art of photography.  I'm learning to use Linux.  I play music professionally as a second job.  I am an airline pilot.

{ Best times/days for you to volunteer? }

Totally unpredictable.  I sometimes have large blocks of time that I can work and sometimes go weeks without a break.  It would be best for me to examine projects on a case-by-case basis.

{Other Comments:}

Hi from Larnica, Cyprus.  I'll get back to the forum in a couple days when I get back to the states and all caught up on other stuff.

     Whatever, however; I'm a lawyer, a published writer and a pretty good editor, but will help with anything if I can spare the time; "no job too small."



{ Any general characteristics that tend to make a project easier for you to volunteer for?  }

    Closed-end jobs; I run a business so I can't devote *un*limited time to projects.


{ Any general characteristics that would make a project harder for you to volunteer for?  }

     Having to make a long term commitment.  

{ Which of these are your biggest motivations for volunteering:  }

{ Skills/Strengths/Weaknesses: }

     Enthusiaism and commitment; "next year in the Free State!"  Not enough time is biggest weakness.
 

{ Foreign languages: }

     No, other than a smattering of Spanish.


{ Other interests: }

     Libertarian and other freedom-oriented politics; reading; writing; science fiction; 2nd Amendment freedoms.


{ Best times/days for you to volunteer? }  

     Whenever; in a certain sence, "all" times are bad, but this is too important a project to pass up because of mere lack of time.
