DETROIT — The Mobile Technology Association of Michigan announced that it is seeking to expand the number of participants in its volunteer group who assist with planning for its chapters in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing.
MTAM Mobile Monday Michigan chapters are run by volunteer organizers from each local community under MTAM supervision. MTAM also assists with organizer training, speaker referrals, event promotion, and other assistance.
MTAM officials say serving as a volunteer is a way to pay back for the education member may have received at earlier meetings, and to gain more contacts in the connected technology community in Michigan.
Chapter event planning is typically coordinated during once-a-month phone conferences and subsequent exchange of emails or phone calls between group members. Group members work together to plan topics, identify and reach out to expert speakers, gather speaker information for event listings on websites and MTAM news releases, and coordinate event logistics with speakers and event hosts and sponsors. Planners can expect to invest one to four hours a month in the effort, plus the time on-site at the Mobile Monday chapter events.
