WIT’s organization is structured to involve as many volunteers as possible with varying degrees of responsibility. There are programmatic positions consisting of committee membership, event speaking, company hosting, and event registration, and any combination thereof. All are challenging, all are important and all are necessary in order for WIT to function and effectively meet our mission.
Effective volunteer leadership requires the ability to appreciate WIT’s goals and to motivate all the various members which collectively make up this organization.
