This week begins a new year of amazing volunteers at APEX.
We are mixing things up this year, and want some fresh new blood in the program!
We will also be doing regular updates here and on the APEX Fetlife.com group with some key positions that need to be claimed in 2018! Did you know, some of these can even be done from home?!
### [Tuesday, January 30th, we have a Volunteer Drive and Social][ https://fetlife.com/events/613792].
Learn about some of the things available, what needs doing this year, and how you can volunteer to help make APEX your own!
There will be snacks and drinks and lots of people to talk to!
### [Wednesday, January 31st there will be a Volunteer Orientation.][https://fetlife.com/events/616041]
Our culture is as important at APEX as our Volunteers. All of our Volunteers want to create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive space for our fellow members. We are merely limited by our understanding and knowledge of how to do that. APEX worked hard in 2017 to support our volunteers with additional training and opportunities to learn. We are doubling down in 2018 with even more tools to put into your toolbox, only this time is it for everyone who volunteers at APEX, not just DM and Door Volunteers, but EVERYONE. We all want to be the best we can be, and APEX can help!
Each Volunteer will be given the foundation to further explore your APEX community, learn about how you can be more a part of the club each day, every time you walk into our space. In Volunteer Orientation we will look at the mission, vision, and values of APEX, and how you can contribute. This class will help you be not only a successful volunteer, but also a successful member-where your role as a volunteer falls in that, and how to be happy and successful in your position. Volunteer Orientation will also provide you the tools and support available to you on your journey at APEX.
We hope everyone will participate this year in some small way. Many hands make light work and all that!
### New Member Orientation Team
APEX is committed to providing lots of quality orientations in 2018. With that goal we created the New Member Orientation Team! An hour of our time creates successful new members, and helps each of us feel more responsible for our club. The next [New Member Orientation Team Training is on Thursday, February 1st at 6pm][https://fetlife.com/events/631424]
### Door Training
Don’t forget…APEX is committed to 600 Events in 2018. That is to events EACH MONTH! To accomplish this, we need Door Volunteers! There is also a [Door Volunteer Training on Wednesday, February 7th][https://fetlife.com/events/619985]. Door Volunteers are the front lines of our club, and you can be part of the “Mission Control” at APEX!
