VolunteeringThe South Carolina Chapter is a busy chapter. We hold a Model Investment Club meeting once a month. We hold planning meetings annually, and we visit clubs upon request and every year to present anniversary certificates, and update members on BetterInvesting news and events.
This is all done by volunteers. Interested in learning new skills or honing those you already have? We need some new volunteers, including Board of Directors members, to help with these events if they are to continue. Some of our volunteer directors are new. Some have been volunteering for numerous years. We have fun doing what we do and enjoy each other's company at our meetings. We meet online, so you don't even have to leave your home.
If you have enjoyed any of our events or services, please consider volunteering to help us keep our events going into the future. Whether you have a few hours now and then or can make a longer commitment, you can be of enormous help.
Here is an overview of the various volunteer roles in a BetterInvesting chapter:
What is a Volunteer?
A BetterInvesting member who wishes to contribute to the chapter. A volunteer may be invited to become an Associate Director on the Chapter Board or, after service the prescribed “apprenticeship period,” be eligible to be voted in as a director.
What is an Associate Director?
A volunteer who wants to be involved in the leadership and management of the Chapter. It is a prerequisite to being nominated for election as a full Director. It can be considered to be a training ground prior to election to full Director to determine if the candidate fully understands and accepts the duties and responsibilities of a full director. The Associate Director position affords the Chapter Board the opportunity to work and observe the candidate for a period of at least one year to see if the person is compatible with the Chapter Board and its purpose.
Who can be a Director?
Any South Carolina Chapter member may be elected to be a Director after service as an Associate Director. There are prerequisites to being a Director. A prospective Director must first have satisfactorily served as either a Volunteer or an Associate Director for a minimum of one year.
Who are the Officers of the Board and how are they selected?
The officers of the South Carolina Chapter are a President, a Vice President, a Secretary and a Treasurer. At a Chapter Board Meeting following the Annual Meeting and preceding the beginning of the next fiscal year, officers for the new fiscal year are elected from the newly elected Board.
Volunteers, Associates and Full directors receive deep discounts on BetterInvesting membership fees, online tools, classes and the BetterInvesting National Convention.
