Office Volunteers 

We need volunteers to assist in the office to reduce the cost of temporary staff.

We need members to help on Mondays and Wednesdays. Wednesday is the day when the office is staffed solely by volunteers and we have no Wednesday volunteer so it is important to get a volunteer to help.

Website Maintenance and Development

The Web Development Group is wanting to enlist the help of extra volunteers in addition to those already involved.  There will be a mix of maintenance and development work and some documentation which can mostly be done from home, with online meetings at regular intervals.

The main requirement is the ability to use a web browser to create and edit web page content  and check the results in conjunction with experience with a comprehensive word processor. A basic knowledge of WordPress would be an advantage, as would experience in using a comprehensive screenshot utility.

Please email the Web Development Group -  webdevgrp (at) melbpc.org.au if you are interested.
