Responsibilities to other board members

The Community Evangelist is responsible to every member of the board. They are responsible to:

  • the Director in that they must consult regularly with her to ensure that they are promoting Jigsaw well and creating compelling programming.
  • the Executive Officer in that they must work with him to ensure that Jigsaw remains a safe place for all its members.
  • the Treasurer in that they must coordinate together to ensure the continued financial health of Jigsaw.
  • the Secretary in that they must coordinate to ensure that internal documents are up to date and accurate.
  • the Technical Officer in that they must coordinate web efforts to promote the space.
  • the Facility in that they are both committed to maintaining a clean and comfortable space for the community to use.
  • the Member at Large in that they are both concerned with any members general concerns.


Make at least three unique media contacts a month.

Bring Jigsaw to 80 or more points by end of year 2010, as defined by the following metrics:

  • Tally each general member and count them as 1/3 of a point.
  • Tally each starving and household member and count them as 1 point.
  • Tally each keyed member and count them as 2 points.
  • Tally each desk member and count them as 4 points.
  • Tally the average monthly donations over Q4 2011, divide the dollar amount by 50 dollars, rounded down, and count this as whatever number of points.
Note: this is very similar to the Variable Member Dues points system, however, it also measures the monthly donations given to Jigsaw.

ex: In December 2010 we might have 42 general members, 11 starving members, 15 keyed members, 6 desk members, and 524$/mo in donations during Q4. When tallied this would indicate 14 pts + 11 pts + 30 pts + 24 pts + 10 pts = 89 pts. As This metric is above 80 it would indicate the Community Evangelist performance is more than satisfactory.
