Five Things Amy Shepard Said is a 2017 Q&A guest post, conducted by the Organization for Transformative Works' Communications Committee with OTW volunteer and Elections Committee staff member Amy Shepard.
It was carried out as part of a series. See Five Things Said.
How does what you do as a volunteer fit into what the OTW does?I volunteer with three committees, Strategic Planning (SP) as a co-chair, Elections, and Tag Wrangling, so what I do may be quite different from another staffer. For the Elections committee, I work as a team coordinator (TC). A lot of the organizing and day to day functions to get ready for the election are completed by TCs, which are like the Elections committee’s personal assistants. I help write the minutes, the roadmap, organizing the to-do board, drafting newsletter updates (which I also write for Strategic Planning), and generally help where other staffers need an extra hand.
What’s the most fun thing to you about volunteering for the OTW?The benefit of working in such a large organization like the OTW means that everyone is a megafan of something. We play games (like Cards Against Humanity or role playing mafia-type games we call Sarlacc games), write fics together, hold movie nights, and share fan art.
