Civic Organizations

Civic organizations can vary significantly in size. Some are small groups that meet in community centers and homes. They do not, therefore, necessarily require full time employees. Instead, they rely on volunteer members. Larger groups, though, such as professional clubs, are often large enough to hire a few staff members.

A large civic organization that regularly holds charity events might need a coordinator that can network with other groups to raise money. The charity events coordinator might work with local nonprofit organizations, businesses, churches, and community centers to raise money for issues such as environmental protection, health care, and mental health counseling. These professionals play an essential role within the clubs. Without them, it is unlikely that the group would have enough money to support itself, let alone other important issues.

Large social clubs also need volunteer coordinators. These managers organize the efforts of members and other volunteers. Some of the volunteers might only work on a semi-regular basis. Others, however, might dedicate time on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. The coordinator makes it possible for the volunteers and members to meet with each other, develop plans, and execute activities that will benefit the target community.

Clubs that have thousands of members often rely on staff members to operate the nonprofit's daily business. They open mail, keep track of records, and perform other office duties. The social club might even need an accountant to collect membership dues and invest donations so that the association can use its money as effectively as possible.

Many civic organizations directories list thousands of public and private associations and nonprofit organizations, searchable by location, name and address, size, statistics, non-profit or for-profit status, services, or meetings and seminars. Some of these sites charge a fee for the information, while others are free. Before choosing a civic organization to join, target organizations that appeal to you and offer exactly what you want, whether a focus on home and family, professional status, business, charity, environmental service, social network, counsel, club meeting place, volunteer opportunities, or health service. Nonprofit civic association organizations are often funded with state or national grants, allowing for the association or center to provide a valuable service to the community, whether through environmental work, social network, counsel services and social and business outlets. Make appointments with each organization. While there, make sure the office is well maintained and clean. Meet with staff and take note if staff members are helpful and accommodating. Speak with the organization members about their efforts and mission, and whether there is a place for you in their organization. Find out if the civic organization is part of a local, national or international entity. Make sure the organization's mission gels with your vision. Inquire about any membership fees. Ask about any regular meetings you must attend to keep up the social, environment, charity, health or volunteer service. Before committing to a civic organization, keep in mind the organization's location, mission, reputation in the industry, background, meeting schedule, nonprofit status, office chair contact information, fees and charity service, such as the homeless.
