brainstorming session:
Vicky– solicited vs unsolicited work?
-Volunteers have expectations and know that they’re going into the position as a volunteer; if they want to take on something extra, they should expect not to be compensated for it
Deciding on a project and whether there is something beyond our own skill set that we can compensate for is a 2-step process that takes place at our weekly meeting
