« Reply #15 on: April 02, 2003, 11:56:02 am »

Is e-mail the best way to contact me? Yes

Names most commonly known as : Will Aygarn

Geographic location: Norfolk, Virginia

What kinds of volunteer work I'd most enjoy doing?
I can make local phone calls saturdays & Sunday and Monday evenings. A little e-mail-type stuff late evenings. I'm currently way behind on completing some family business and can't spare much time otherwise. I am a certified Land Surveyor in Va.  I have a farm in Virginia Beach if anyone can think of a way to use it for the cause.

Any general characteristics that make a project easier for me to volunteer for?  A flexible schedule that I can fit into my scedule. Work that I can do alone and at odd hours, and away from my home/office and it's desktop computer. I do have a laptop and a DOS word processing program.

Any general characteristics that would make a project harded for me to volunteer for? A set schedule. the requirements to be at a given place. Public contact.

My biggest motivations for volunteering: Self preservation. I think the FSP is the only sort of thing that can save a remenant of the Republic and a piece of a free America. I feel a sense of duty to help in the effort to restore a free state to this country.

Foreign languages: none

Other interests: I am very active in my church. My other interests are pretty well covered by Backwoodsman Magazine, the Whole Earth Catalogs, and www.infowars.com

Best times for me to volunteer: Odd hours when I can fit it in, Saturdays 800-1600 Sundays and Mondays 1600-2400 for phone work (I'm a bridge tender and can usually spare some time there) Occasionally a local meeting.

Other comments: None at the moment

I have kids and am committed to spending evenings (5pm to 8pm) with them.  Also, my wife and I are tag-teem parents so the kids are never in "child care", so my schedule is purely dependent upon my wife's work schedule (she's a nurse).  Days she has the kids, I'm able to schedule around my consulting clients.  Also, I have a nearly complete law library in my garage.

Hey, your long list of examples sound good.  I probably should at least go to the local (Dane County) LP meeting and let them know what's what.  Not too many FSPers from Wisconsin, yet.  I can write html, and have done database work before, if that's something you actually need done.  Anyone with the high-end database software they could loan, to make it easier?  Also, I can make a certain number of long-distance calls per month for you, maybe 60 minutes worth, for essentially free because of un-used cell phone minutes.  The new-member greeter is a great idea, just maybe mention it somewhere in the sign-up confirmation page that "someone may be calling you in the next few days, unless you request otherwise".

{ Any general characteristics that tend to make a project easier for you to volunteer for? }
The project being for the FSP!:)

Hey All, I'm Jacob Winkler, a high school senior. Rather than answer all those questions I'll just say that I'm willing to volunteer any way I can. (I live in the NJ area) I'm only decently familiar with computers but can write rather well. If any help is needed please ask. My email is Trendizan@aol.com.

I'm experienced doing outreach booths for the LP, I'm the best computer network engineer you've ever seen (all computer related categories), I have also worked as a bartender and a casino craps dealer, I juggle, I type at 80wpm, I write and speak well, goofy publicity stunts, rave promotions, and I'm a fairly decent public speaker.

From your examples, I'd choose:  website work, 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, 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, think-tank work, book writing, 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.


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

I find projects easier to volunteer for when it's something fun or creative like manning a booth at a rave or concert, doing graphics, writing articles, etc.


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

Tedious, boring, thoughtless, tiresome work like phone banks, digging ditches, etc.


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

- Affiliation/Socializing
- need for a challenge
- creativity/self expression (desire to contribute inventive new ideas)
- Independence (desire to work free from supervision, on your own)
- Leadership (visible position, authority, cool title)
- Recognition (public recognition of contribution, chance to work with important folks)

- Security (i.e. you like familiar, comfortable tasks)
- Self-improvement (gain or sharpen skills in safe environment)
- Sense of Duty ("If I don't do it who will?")
- Service/Interest in cause

{Other Comments:}

I'm dependable and honest.  If I say I'll be there, I will.  Sadly in my history of volunteering for the LP I've seen many people flake.  That may have something to do with being in California though.  I'm well read (especially in classic Libertarian Literature) and write articulately.

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

I post as Aaron.

{ Your geographic location?
Palm Springs, CA

{ Any general characteristics that tend to make a project easier for you to volunteer for? }
Something I can work on a little at a time with little urgency, or something that can be completed in one day.

{Any general characteristics that would make a project harder for you to volunteer for? }
Something with a strict deadline that requires more than one day to complete.  Something that requires a lot of interaction/coordination with many other volunteers.

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

- need for a challenge

Sense of Duty/Service/Interest in cause
More specifically, satisfaction of seeing my work make a difference for the cause.

{Foreign languages: }
Familiar with the grammatical structure (and underlying philosophy) of E-Prime.  Can't speak it, but I can translate written word.

{Other interests: }
I am a barista at Starbucks and happen to be the resident know-it-all at my store.  I am also a student of massage therapy.  I am vegetarian for the most part.  I will occaisionally eat a piece of choice or prime meat (ultra rare only!) or sushi, but it would be hard to catch me eating ground meat or chicken.  (What is the point? It tastes just like tofu.  And ground meat?  Who knows how mmany human fingers are in there...)  Dairy products are just plain gross.  Milk is food for infant cows.

{Best times/days for you to volunteer? }
I can't do much right now, but give me a year to finish school and find a steady job in my new field (easy to do in the Palm Springs area).  I will then expand my availability for volunteer work.

{Other Comments:}
One unique skill I can offer is with regards to the computer/video equipment I have.  If anyone needs material on VHS tape converted to an internet appropriate file or CDRom you can send it to me.  I also have a little space on a website with a lot of bandwidth to host a video file for progressive download.  Or I can burn a CDR and mail it back.
