CWCG is looking for a few good men and women to join the board.  

The CWCG (Columbia Willamette Compensation Group) board is in the planning stages for the upcoming year.  As a result we will have 5 open positions for the 2015 board.  All of the great professional development and networking programs that CWCG brings to you are produced and executed by a volunteer board, so these positions are critical to our success. This is a great opportunity to make new connections, enhance your leadership skills and have a little fun.

  • Technology Chair – Does HTML coding make you happy?  Do you want a chance to explore your creative side?  Perhaps, you have experience in leading projects related to systems implementation?  If so, CWCG could use your help in updating our website.  The Technology Chair will lead a committee of board members and current CWCG members, to accomplish the changes.  In addition to updating the website, the role also serves as employer and member contact for posted positions and reviews job postings prior to publishing. 
  • Communications Chair – Is your passion creative writing?  Do you enjoy coming up with clever taglines?  Come put your skills to work at CWCG.  Coordinate the publication of an electronic newsletter by ensuring that all communications are timely, accurate, and of professional quality.  Identify and develop new forms of communications, develop marketing plans, and update the website periodically.
  • Social Media Chair (NEW ROLE) – We are excited to have this new role on the board that will concentrate on helping CWCG harness the power of social media.  So, if you fancy yourself an expert in the twitterverse and you can effectively communicate in 140 characters or less, come join CWCG to share your knowledge and expertise.  Works with Communications Chair to integrate CWCG's messaging with the CWCG Website and various social media outlets (e.g. Twitter, LinkedIn).
  • Programs Committee Co-Chairs (2 seats available): The Programs Committee is the team responsible for the planning and executing of all CWCG sponsored events throughout the year, including our networking events, briefings, luncheons and WorldatWork courses offered in the Portland metro area.  If you are skilled party planner and a powerful negotiator, the programs committee is for you.

If you are interested in serving on the Board in 2015, I would like to connect with you.  I encourage you to complete the brief application (click here to download) and email it back to me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
