Keeping Boston Software Crafters running requires lots of small jobs. If you take on one of these, it’s a big help to the organization. You can sign up for one of these and then move to doing something else later on. Or you can suggest a different job that you’re interested in doing.
To volunteer or discuss in more detail, contact us.
We really appreciate your help!

|T-shirt Wizard||It would be amazing to have Boston Software Crafters t-shirts to sell. Find someone to design the shirt (or design it yourself). Work with enough leaders of the group to get approval of the design. Find a vendor with the right price/quality balance. Decide on the right quantity and mix of sizes to order. Deal with the vendor to get the shirts made.|
|Attendee Greeter||People showing up to an evening event could use a friendly face to greet them. Tell people how to get started. Make them feel welcome. This can be totally informal; if you warmly greet just one apprehensive attendee, you’ve made a difference! This is needed both for on line and when we go back to in person.|
