NCTA Volunteer Positions
If you’re interested in getting more involved with NCTA on an ongoing basis, we have a few volunteer positions that require a small amount of time throughout the year. These positions open up periodically, so please let us know if you would be interested in one of them.
- General Meeting Refreshments Coordinator
Purchase snacks and refreshments for the General Meeting, set up the table and coordinate clean-up after the meeting. A budget will be provided and the cost will be reimbursed.
- Social Events Organizer
You will be responsible for selecting a venue where you will host a social event to gather 2 to 10 people. Coordinate attendance and collect attendees contact information for NCTA’s database. Take pictures of the event, write up any highlights and send to Events Director. Before the event: share the announcement through social media and with your network.
- Membership Outreach Assistant
Identify organizations, such as cultural groups or international chambers of commerce, where we might be able to reach translators and interpreters who are interested in joining a professional association. Work with the membership director to promote NCTA meetings and workshops to community organizations, universities, and online to get the word out to potential new members.
- Translorial Mailing Manager
Collect the latest member and courtesy recipient list from the webmaster or administrator shortly before mailing, prepare the list, and supervise mailing service. Ensure that the issue is mailed to members so that the journal is received at least ten days before the General Meeting.
- Translorial Proofreaders
Proofread assigned portions of Translorial prior to publication.
