Volunteerism at Department
At department, we are now using SalesForce to store and maintain all of our member information. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to check if the information (cell phone, home phone, home address, and email address) we have is accurate as much of our member data stored at national is missing. The course of action we are taking is to call every member that has a phone number listed and confirm their information over the phone. In order to do this in a timely manner, we need the help of volunteers who can work from department, or from their homes on this task. Rick Donovan (pictured left) is doing great as our first volunteer, but we hope to get more!
If you are able to assist please call Troy Velie for more information at 740-816-7589 or email to email@example.com. Thank you.
