This includes both core volunteers (eg committee members and other roles) as well as occasional volunteers (eg one-time help during a campaign or other event.).

We are looking for people with energy, excitement and commitment to the Green Party, and the values it carries. If you are interested in participating in this way, we would love to hear from you! If you have any questions, please feel free to email the chair. WRGreens aims to reply to all emails within 48 hours. However, if you do not get a response for any reason, please resend your email.
