    Do you like freeweeks? Would you like to help make our site celebrations bigger and better? If so, the Outreach Activities Team may be for you, and we're looking for some fresh blood to join our core team of excellence!

    What is the Outreach Activities Team?
    The Outreach Activities Team is a group of Tower volunteers who work with our Outreach Activities Coordinator to plan, prepare, and execute site activities, most especially our freeweek festivals Bel Tine and Shaoman. OAT membership is a TarValon.Net Staff level position. The ideal candidate for this position is motivated and creative and loves to have fun.

    OAT membership runs in 6 month terms, which commence in January (main event: Bel Tine) and July (main event: Shaoman). Towards the end of the term members are offered the opportunity to opt to volunteer to stay on for the next term.


    In addition, the OATs are responsible for helping Name Day Narg, our resident Trolloc, send out daily birthday wishes! There are also projects to work on for some exciting, new online fun for the community!

    Requirements:
    We have a few specific, simple requirements that we must ask of you in order to qualify to be a member of the OAT (also sometimes known as ... an "OAT"). They are as follows:


    • You need to have been a member of TV.Net for at least 3 months. There is no rank requirement, anyone from a Citizen all the way up to Amyrlin may apply. Junior Members, this can count as your contribution towards raising!
    • You will be expected to have about 2-3 hours a week available to spend on the boards for planning, and more as required during the events.
    • It's not entirely necessary, but it's a plus to have experience and skill with graphics, creative writing, gaming, leadership, or event planning.
    • You must be willing and able to follow through with whatever tasks you volunteer for - please don't disappear in the middle!
    Duties:
    As an OAT, you will perform one or more of the following duties, according to your specific skills and talents:


    • Actively participate in the planning and production of site-wide events including the official freeweeks.
    • Assist in running chat based events
    • Send out the Name Day Narg birthday cards
    • Produce the graphics, banners, avatars, award badges etc. as requested to make events tick.


    Team One is the Freeweek team, the people behind the scenes that put together the games and events that make the freeweeks a good time for all.


    Team Two is the Daily Team, the people who keep the birthday cards going out to the people who have signed up for birthday notices. Sometimes a birthday PM is what bring a long lost TarValoner back to the community, so it’s a pretty important job!


    How to Apply:
    So you're interested in selling your soul helping us make great events? Simply send an email to outreachactivities@tarvalon.net and outreach@tarvalon.net with a subject of "APPLICATION - OUTREACH ACTIVITIES TEAM" and mentioning your Tower name, with why you think you'll be a good addition to the team. Be sure to include anything that might help strengthen your application and help us match you with suitable team duties!

    Applications due by January 27, 2018.

    Is it still possible to join as a graphics member? I'm not good at coming up with ideas but in the past I've enjoyed helping with the graphics side of things.

    For people who only want to do graphics I would ask that they also join the daily team (sending birthday cards etc). Mainly because graphics are a small overall part of the dept and it's considered a bonus to have, first priority is events planning and dailies. But if you're willing to be on the birthday team as well as graphics you are welcome to apply! (You can also ask @Ninya Evoneigh about the graphics dept ;))

    Only a few days left and we could use some more people for events and dailies! If you're thinking you don't have much to offer, think again! If you can write, plan games, run games with a plan already in place, create and manage spreadsheets, PM people, encourage activity, count, have an appreciation for art and photography, throw ideas out there, weigh in on others ideas, work together as a team, meet deadlines and have an enthusiasm to make other people happy, you can do this job. It's basically not even a job, but fun with a job title.

    It's a great way for JMs to complete their project for raising, and I have been known to brag about people :mother

    Come join the team and feel free to ask me any questions ^^

    I wish. I could. But... life is too crazy this year. Maybe next year. I have ideas to rejuvenate live online events! :) In time.
