Development & Membership Committee Staff
The Development & Membership committee (DevMem) coordinates the OTW’s fundraising and membership-building activities. Our primary responsibility is coordinating our biannual fund drives. Our other responsibilities include designing a new convention outreach process, communicating with donors, researching implementation for an OTW merchandise store, and exploring new fundraising opportunities. If you have skills or interests in fundraising, membership database management, creating promotional OTW graphics, eCommerce, or customer service, consider applying to join our staff.

Applications are due 15 June 2016 UTC

Translation Committee Volunteers
If you enjoy working collaboratively, if you’re fluent in a language other than English, if you’re passionate about the OTW and its projects, and want to help us reach more fans all around the world, working with Translation might be for you!

Translation volunteers help make the OTW and its projects accessible to a wider global audience. We work on translating content by the OTW and its projects from English to other languages, such as site pages, news posts, AO3 FAQs and AO3 Support emails. (However, we do not translate fanworks.)

We really need volunteers who speak Arabic, Croatian, Filipino, Greek, Japanese, Kiswahili, Korean, Marathi, Norwegian, Slovenian and Vietnamese—but help with other languages would be much appreciated.

(Please note that our Chinese, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish teams are not accepting new members at this time.)

Applicants may be asked to translate and correct short text samples as part of the selection process.

More information about us can be found on the Translation committee page.
