Volunteering

In Other Words Bookstore and Resource Center (IOW) is looking for Board members!

The IOW Board of Directors is a group of dedicated volunteers who oversee the vision and mission of In Other Words Bookstore and Resource Center, which is a project of the Women’s Community Education Project. Each member brings a different set of skills and experiences to the table. The Board is currently focusing on major donor cultivation, coordinating fundraising and community-building events, and internal policies and procedures to ensure that the bookstore is a sustainable organization. Though it is not required, experience in non-profit organizations, grass-roots fundraising, non-profit law and board or committee work is a plus. As a Board member, feminism is a must.
