                                              WV Appleseed Job List

If you are interested or involved in moving the Appleseed Project forward in the Mountain State, then PLEASE look over this evolving list of positions and tasks that are currently available. Although this is an all volunteer effort, the selection of a task or position should be taken seriously. Make sure you have the time commitment and skills to do the job effectively.

There is no space for ego and self-interest within the WV chapter of Appleseed--instead--we are American Patriots, united as one, for the common Cause. Titles have no value, other than to serve as a means to identify skills and purpose within the organization. Remember, this program is about saving America and passing the torch of Liberty to future generations--priceless!

You will notice that there are a lot of available slots listed. That is because WV never had an Appleseed program until recently, which means we've got a lot of catching up to do. This also gives you an opportunity to be one of the foundational team, grabbing the first buckets available for bailing the sinking honorable position indeed.  :)  Can, or do you want to, DO something that isn't listed? If so, please contact me ASAP! This list is not set in's simply someplace to start - ideas.

So, this is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor and become part of the groundbreaking team of WV Appleseed. Until we increase membership in WV, some of us will have to wear several hats in the interim. I hope to see THAT change in the near future as we start vigorously promoting Appleseed in the state. The list of positions might seem rather ambitious for a volunteer program - I set the bar high. WV has a population of almost 2 million citizens...I'm only asking for 25 to step up, at this time.

Take Notice: The National folks have announced that there is something special "in the works" for State Coordinators to present to dedicated, motivated, and productive workers at the state level. The only way to receive--without cost--this unique, one-of-a-kind item, is to be a "doer" for the advancement of our state program. Everyone that has stepped-up as a volunteer in WV should be doing this anyhow, but now, there will be special recognition for those actually doing it...stay tuned.

When you identify a position or task that you feel comfortable with, send me a PM for a detailed Task Sheet of what's required in terms of your time and skills/knowledge. Thanks...TM
