Posted on 21 June 2019
By Louise Fleming
We are pleased to announce that we are launching a new volunteer program, and Louise will be filling the newly-created position of Volunteer Coordinator. This position will support our Conservation Program’s campaigns throughout the Chapter, in a concerted effort to manage new volunteers who have contacted the Angeles Chapter expressing a desire to volunteer their time in helping us to accomplish our environmental goals.
Louise has been a Front Desk Receptionist volunteer for the Angeles Chapter since August 2015, assisting our members, leaders, and the general public with various inquiries. She has also been active doing outreach activities with our environmental partners in Long Beach and Torrance. More recently, she has been supporting our Chapter Leaders with updating and modifying content on our website, scheduling events, and with maintaining membership account records and other SalesForce activities.
In this new Volunteer Coordinator position, Louise will manage the recruitment of new Volunteers and guide the on-boarding process. The New Volunteers’ information will be captured and streamlined into a single database, then based upon their interests, special talents, location, etc., we will match them to suit the volunteering needs of our Regional Groups, Campaigns or other entities within the Angeles Chapter. By providing a customized screening approach to the placement of volunteers, we aim to have a more efficient process that will best serve both the needs of our Chapter in supporting our environmental objectives while providing a fulfilling volunteer-service experience.
Prior to her working with the Sierra Club, Louise was the Marketing and Business Development Coordinator for an independent Corporate Travel Agency in El Segundo. Louise is a native New York-er, and has a B.S. in Environmental Health from York College, CUNY. She currently resides in the South Bay.
The Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club welcomes your participation in its century of involvement in the enjoyment and protection of our planet's environment. The Angeles Chapter spans Los Angeles and Orange Counties in Southern California, with an extensive program of hikes/hiking, national and international travel, local conservation campaigns, political action, and programs for people of all ages.
