Distributor of Monthly Calendar President
Be a Volunteer!
SPECTRUM is built on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. From the volunteer Board of Directors, to event organizers and group facilitators, to special projects, research, staffing drop-in hours, administrative work and much more, nothing happens at SPECTRUM not created by volunteer work.
Towards the end of each month, the print version of the “Rainbow Community Calendar” is published. Each Distributor of the Monthly Calendar commits to delivering copies to a particular area of Waterloo Region. We have a detailed list of every place where we leave copies, and how many copies we leave there. Each location has been receiving copies for some time and is an LGBTQ-friendly location. Locations include public agencies, cafes, restaurants, etc.
This position requires some walking, whether you use a car or bus. You should be comfortable spending some time outside and also speaking with people you do not know.
SPECTRUM publishes the “Rainbow Community Calendar”, which is a monthly listing of events in Waterloo Region of interest to the LGBTQ community. We distribute it in print format (as well as electronically) to various locations in Waterloo Region. Distributing print copies is a vital way of helping to maintain a sense of community.
Our experience has shown that distribution in one of the cities (Waterloo, Kitchener or Cambridge) will take around 4 hours (once a month).
We are asking for a commitment to this position of at least 7 months.
We will work with you to determine which areas of Waterloo Region you will make deliveries to. You will do your first runs with an experienced Distributor, and you will be provided with the detailed list of locations and number of copies for each location.
