Volunteer Roles


The following contains general descriptions of the many different roles to be played in the operation of the Affenpinscher Club of America.

This is not a procedure manual.  Neither is it part of the by-laws – though hopefully it is not in conflict with any provisions in that document!

A described role may be filled by one person or several.  Any one person may fill several roles (for example at present one person is the Webmaster, Mail List coordinator, and Newsletter Editor).

The Key Responsibilities are a guide – they are not intended to be comprehensive, nor should they be viewed as 100% required.  As these roles are filled by volunteers, it is expected they will bring their best effort and perform in good faith.  But also, they will have fresh ideas and approaches to filling the purpose of the role.

As Club members are seeking to increase their involvement, it is hoped this document may guide them in exploring the many opportunities. You can download Volunteer Roles Document.
