Chapter Development Organizing Meeting
In 2019, Affirmation is launching a new plan to provide a face-to-face community within a four-hour drive of 90% of the population of the U.S. and Canada. Our goal is to strengthen existing chapters and develop new chapters where there is a critical mass of Affirmation members, with a goal of 30 total chapters in the U.S. and Canada.
This plan will include stronger support for volunteers, more clearly defined roles, and service term limits (to prevent burnout). It will involve coordination that can enable many volunteers to contribute a few hours a month as opposed to a handful of volunteers doing all the work.
With a few hours of your time each month, you can make a huge difference in the lives of LGBTQ Mormons who need support!
We need volunteers in the areas of suicide awareness and prevention work, spiritual activities, social activities, service projects, dialogue, and community relations/outreach!
Even if you are not sure you want to get involved as a volunteer, but are interested in learning more, please RSVP and join us at the meeting! We will discuss our vision for community support and would welcome your ideas and input.
Download our proposed “USA/Canada Chapter Map” and our “Leadership Roles” documents and think about how you would like to help out. Volunteers will be organized into teams of 4 or more. If you’ve never had any chapter leadership experience, we will provide training along with one-on-one support and coaching.
