Looking for Volunteers to Help with Website and Data Management

Friday, January 15, 2021 9:50 AM | Eric Brinsfield (Administrator)

We need some extra help with several “IT”-like jobs for the club.  I want to be sure I have some people trained to support the BBSA website when I finally sail off into the sunset.  We also need some extra support for the Leo Wardrup Memorial Cape Charles Cup.  Sometimes, I go cruising and we need faster responses when I am gone. 

I can use people with all skill levels for some tasks as long as you are comfortable with computers.  You can volunteer for short-term projects or ongoing support.  

What I am looking for are people who:

  • Understand computer systems, the internet, and cloud storage
    (such as Dropbox)
  • Are comfortable working with a team
    (with frequent communication with team members)
  • Can be available to respond to requests on short notice.  Mostly that is for CCC because as we get close to the deadline, the committee needs quick updates. 
  • Have better than average Microsoft Excel skills
  • Are willing to help with data entry along with other support
  • For the website:
    • Have basic concepts of web design and data management.
    • Understand how to work within the constraints of an application such as Wild Apricot or WordPress

It would also help to find someone who:

  • Has experience with more advanced features of Excel, such as:
    • Power Query and connections
    • Pivot Tables
    • Excel worksheet formatting and conditional processing
    • VBA programming
  • Knows a programming languages, such as Python. 
    (we are not using this now, but would consider it.)
  • HTML, XML, and JSON

If you are interested, please contact me at 919-302-3747 or eric@ecbrinsfield.com
