Communications and Membership Micro Volunteer Opportunties

Communications and Membership micro volunteer opportunities are dynamic and less structured than term or task-oriented volunteer jobs. Volunteers will receive information on opportunities as they become available. The time frame for a micro volunteer commitment is July 2017 through June 2018. The functional working time will vary by assignment.

To participate, volunteers must maintain current MLA individual membership throughout the volunteer term. Upon acceptance, you will be advised of your current membership status and any necessary action. Non-members can join MLA online or by calling 517-394-2774.
