Approximate commitment timeframe: August 2021 to March 2022

As a presentation facilitator, you will receive training on how to facilitate a virtual Arthritis Society presentation. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is comfortable with technology, public speaking, and has a familiarity or connection to arthritis. These presentations are pre-developed and pre-recorded by the Arthritis Society, and discuss various aspects of arthritis, management, and living-well strategies. Volunteer opportunities will be available through primarily virtual environments. These presentations will be delivered to various community members, community groups, residences, organizations, and workplaces who wish to increase their knowledge and awareness of arthritis, and how to manage the disease. Participants consist of those living with arthritis, those who support someone living with arthritis, or are general community members looking to learn more. These presentations are an opportunity to share information about arthritis and vital self-management information to help people live well with arthritis. The primary role will be to welcome attendees, facilitate the virtual presentation, present the pre-developed video content, and support a Q&A following the presentation.
