3 people are interested
The Silicon Valley Walk to End Alzheimer's Planning Committee seeks volunteers for our Company Engagement team.
Do you love to use LinkedIn? Do you have an extensive "Rolodex" of company or corporate contacts in your community? Do you like to talk to people? If you answered yes to any of the questions above, we need you!
Our Company Engagement team will help us prospect local companies to engage with the Walk to End Alzheimer's. We want to build our local Sponsorships and Company Teams and partner with them to increase awareness about Alzheimer's in our local community and what the Alzheimer's Association can offer to their employees.
The right fit for this committee is someone who is comfortable reaching out to their network and asking them to help us #EndAlz and doesn't get discouraged by a no. This team will help us find those companies that need our help and then work with them to provide coaching and encouragement to increase their fundraising.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone wanting to increase their executive skill set and volunteer leadership skills. The Silicon Valley Walk was the number one Walk to End Alzheimer's in the country in 2020 and is currently on track to retain that position.
We look forward to you joining our merry band!
