Hi
That sounds like a terrific bargain. I've been on lots of lists but never one that had the friendliness of this list and the sort of committment and passion I see in people's responses.

Thanks.

It will be very satisfying to me if at the end of 6 months I have been able to build a set of resources and procedures that demonstrate to you all how highly valued what you do as volunteers is to Benetech. After the announcement I had the excuse to drop in on several people in senior management. The message came through loud and clear how important our volunteers are. It will be my job to be part of the team that makes that obvious to you all.

No rabbits coming out of hats here but we will be forging a project plan to make solid steady progress that adds up to an easier more enjoyable experience for volunteers.

Or, as my professors in college taught me, the reward for doing good work is being given more work. So here's the bargain: I'll do good work so you all can do more work!

That is excellent news. Congratulations. It's really great that you're
taking the time to be a part of the volunteer community, as well as
keeping us apprised of goings-on in-house. Sure makes me feel like we
have more of a voice. At least, folks can hear about what we like and
what frustrates us, and we can hear about what's being done to improve
site navigation or mechanics. You're really doing a great job.

Bookshare Volunteers,

I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to remain with Bookshare for the next 6 months. My title will be as a Benetech Fellow but my position will remain within the Volunteer Department. Many of my responsibilities will remain the same however details will be finalized when Pavi returns on June 1. I will keep you updated.
