DETROIT – Have you enjoyed attending an MTAM Mobile Monday Michigan event at one of our chapters in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Grand Rapids or Lansing? Have you benefitted from education you received from an expert speaker, or contacts you made at one of our monthly events? Have you thought about finding a way to be more involved in the exciting and evolving Connected Tech community in Michigan? If so, we have just the opportunity for you.
The Mobile Technology Association of Michigan is currently looking to expand the number of participants in our volunteer groups who assist with planning for Mobile Monday Michigan chapters in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing. Mobile Monday chapters are run by volunteer organizers from each local community under MTAM’s supervision. MTAM also assists with organizer training, speaker referrals, event promotion, and other organizer assistance as is required.
Chapter event planning is typically coordinated during a once per month phone conference and subsequent exchange of emails or phone calls between group members. Group members work together to plan topics, identify and reach out to expert speakers, gather speaker information for event listing on Meetup site and MTAM news releases, and coordinate event logistics with speakers and event host/sponsors. Generally you can expect to invest 1 – 4 hours per month plus the time on-site at the Mobile Monday chapter events.
Mobile Monday Michigan chapter organizers are seen as leaders in the connected tech community. It’s a great way to broaden your network of contacts, learn a great deal more about all areas of connected technologies, and to help insure that Michigan maintains a national leadership role in the connected tech community.
