In 2012 we survived a vote of dissolution by one vote (essentially mine), and I agreed to serve as President. We still had members and we still had plenty of funds to stay running, but no one wanted to step up to run the chapter, so I ran it in 2013 essentially by myself. I commend the Berkeley Chapter if you guys actually have a stable officer corps other than president!

In 2013/2014 our project was “hosting” Summit 2014 and we had a committee of about 8 people from which I was able to get a VP and Secretary/Treasurer for 2014 and VP for 2015. In the second half of 2014 it was a website revamp project from which I culled a Membership Chair and Secretary/Treasurer for 2015. In 2015 we plan to hold our first publications competition in nearly 10 years, and I hope to find more volunteers from that project as well, especially since my major personal goal will be to serve as Immediate Past President in 2016.

Over the last 11 years, the Berkeley chapter has had only different people in the office of president, and one year with nobody in that office. How do you find and nurture new volunteers who can eventually hold chapter office?

Where it has been possible, I’ve added the email alias for a chapter’s president as well as any personal email address I have for a chapter president. If you receive the email twice, you can decide whether you want to leave both email addresses subscribed or remove one of them.
