5 Things an OTW Volunteer Said

Five Things Clark Seanor Said

Every month or so the OTW will be doing a Q&A with one of its volunteers about their experiences in the organization. The posts express each volunteer’s personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OTW or constitute OTW policy. Today’s post is with Clark Seanor, who volunteers as a staffer in our Elections Committee.

How does what you do as a volunteer fit into what the OTW does?

Being in the Elections team in general means that you’re responsible for the OTW’s Board elections running — and running smoothly. Voting Process Architects, or VPAs, help with the technical side: we investigate (and solve!) issues and make sure that processes are documented.
