POCA Volunteer Orientation Meetings (Ongoing)

    Hello POCAverse!
    When you joined POCA, one of the things we asked you was “Would you like to volunteer for POCA?” Although you are under no obligation to volunteer, one of the reasons we made POCA a coop was so that all members could legally volunteer their time for the good of the coop.
    Until recently we really didn’t have a good mechanism for bridging the gap from “I’d like to volunteer for POCA” to “I’m a working member volunteer”. But now we do!
    We’ve already had one volunteer orientation meeting and we’re ready to have another one, this one will be on Tuesday August 12 at 7:30pm EDT (that’s 6:30 CDT, 5:30 MDT, and 4:30 PDT). We’d love it if you came, if a lot of of you would come, if ALL of you would come!
    We will be talking about how POCA became POCA, how the work of POCA is done in circles (we are all volunteers, just like you!), and what current and future projects are needing volunteers. The more volunteers there are, the more work we get done.
    Here’s how we run the meetings: We all get together in Nebraska – no wait, that’s the wrong meeting! We all get together on the computer, on Google+ hangout. If you have a webcam you can join us in that way. If you have no webcam, you can join the meeting by phone at Conference #857-216-3092 PIN #39992. Dress is casual. The meeting will last about an hour.
    To receive an invitation to this or any other Volunteer Orientation Meetings, send a request to membership@pocacoop.com and we will gladly add you to the group! Hope to see you then!

Conference Keynote: Breaking the Ceiling

The theme for this conference is “Breaking Barriers”. You know, there are so many barriers to break in acupuncture that it was really hard to choose which ones to talk about for this speech. But since I’ve spent so much time talking about classism as a barrier, I thought it might be fun to shift gears a little and talk about numbers.
