CSTS global is in danger


The following is a message from Jen Cumming, a member of the Global Team for Can't Stop The Serenity. For 7 years they've been the power behind the great local events we've had and the global movement is crucial to our success. This year we've yet to find someone willing to take on the pressure of being the global organizer. Please read.

Hi there!

This year’s call for volunteers to head up and join the Can’t Stop the Serenity (CSTS) Global Team has resulted in only a few responses.  Which means that CSTS 2013 is at risk of not having a team to organise things from a global level.  As a past/present CSTS Organizer, we desperately need your help to make sure that CSTS can continue to be viable as a fan-run charity movement.

There are lots of ways you can help, but the most important is to help us to find volunteers to nominate for the role of Global Event Coordinator (GEC).  It’s a big job, there’s no denying.  But the person who takes on the job gets a lot of support, and is never left to struggle on their own. There are lots of people to go to for advice, guidance and help, and a lot of the hard work (based on lessons learned from our seven year history) has been done to lay down a good foundation.  The only downside is that the GEC can’t head up a local event (because the role is a lot of work, and we want to make sure sanity is retained!).

"If not you, then who?" We really need someone to step up and be willing to help lead CSTS in 2013.  To keep CSTS 2013 on track, we need to have the global team in place by early December.  So please think about it for yourself, talk to your team and to other Browncoats who have headed up events.  And let us know. 

I'm emailing this call for help to as many CSTS organizers, and past Global Team members as I can track down.  But some of the email addresses are old and out of date, so you if can help us spread the word to past and present CSTS organizers please do.


We have about 3 weeks max to find us a GEC and a full team complement.  All the details about the role of the GEC and other team positions are on the website under the "About" section.  Here's the link: http://www.cantstoptheserenity.com/about/global-team/roles/. Details about how to apply for a role are here: http://www.cantstoptheserenity.com/2012/09/30/nominations-are-now-open-to-join-the-2013-global-team/
