Scribes Needed for Valero Ride to the River Steering Committees

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National MS Society

MSlogo

Bike MS is the fundraising cycling series of the National MS Society and raises more money than any other cycling event for any other cause. To date, Bike MS cyclists, volunteers, and donors have raised more than $1.3 billion to stop MS in its tracks, restore what's been lost, and end MS forever. By volunteering, you can be a part of this growing movement!

We are in need of a volunteer to join our Steering Committee for our Valero Ride to the River Event. This is a historic fundraising ride which raises over $1,000,000 dollars annually for those living with MS. The Steering Committee assists with the long-term planning of the ride in the months leading up to it.

The open position is for two Committee Scribes. These individuals work closely with MS Society Staff and the Committee Chairs to create a written record of each committee meeting. The Scribe will take detailed notes during the meeting and ensure that all members are provided with an accurate transcript in a timely manner.

This role is essential in ensuring that all of the various aspects of the ride remain on the same page in order to ensure a successful execution of the event. The time will be ~2 hours monthly which includes attendance of each committee meeting, creation of the transcript, and distribution of the notes to all members.
