|Help PMD engage more volunteers in helping charities who need volunteer assistance but lack the staffing and other resources to do so. Leverage your expertise and leadership skills so that more people can volunteer productively to make a difference to others and enrich their own lives in the process.
Currently, there are six members on PMD’s Board of Directors with the chair’s term ending in December. Board members serve staggered, three-year terms.
|The PMD Board Chair works closely with PMD's founder (and sole paid staff person) to develop meeting agendas. PMD Board Directors are involved in the Greater Boston community professionally and personally; contribute “time, treasure, and talent” by attending all quarterly board meetings/conference calls; volunteering for PMD service projects and increasing PMD's volunteer base; identifying and cultivating prospective donors, contributors, and benefit attendees from personal circles to raise a collective $136,000 in operating income; attend, sell tickets for and organize benefits and other fundraising events; promote the positive public image of PMD; and receive governance experience, networking connections, and opportunities for direct impact on PMD, its volunteers, and charity partners.
|Mutually available weeknights in winter )late January - early February), late April, plus weekend half-day in November (usually on second or third weekend) for a working meeting personalizing annual fundraising letters.
|Downtown Boston or Randolph, MA (or conference call or zoom call due to pandemic/weather)
|5 to 7 hours/month

PMD seeks to create a world in which people and businesses are socially aware and engaged in their communities such that they approach volunteerism by learning about problems and needs, becoming familiar with local charities that are working to address them, volunteering reliably, and providing other needed resources to make a difference. Our vision is for everyone to be able to volunteer productively a few times a year so that together we make a real difference throughout the year while learning important things along the way.
