Q: When does the Chapter Chair get involved?
A: If the Chapter Chair would like to be an interviewer, they need to be added to the list as an interviewer or any other role they would like to be involved in. Otherwise the Chapter Chair will be introduced to the new and fully onboarded volunteer by the local coach.
Q: What is the number of interviewers and how do tiebreakers work?
A: There are 2 interviews. The Regional Volunteer Intake Coordinator will make every effort to ensure one of these interviews is local to the applicant’s chapter.
