Community Leadership Form
Thank you for your interest in becoming a community leader in the Russellville Voice.
We will use this page to answer some common questions about what is involved in becoming a community leader and how the Russellville Voice will be used to help you use your leadership skills.
The purpose of the Russellville Voice is to give every person a voice in the community. We will do this by engaging a variety of communities in Russellville.
WHAT IS A COMMUNITY?
A community is a group of people who share common interests, opinions and values. These values and opinions can be centered around almost anything. Pets, sports, food, religion are all some common communities. While your community will be specific to your niche, we need to be sure these communities are kid-friendly and open to anyone.
WHAT IS THE RUSSELLVILLE VOICE?
The Russellville Voice is a community project that engages the people of Russellville by engaging a variety of community interests through a variety of mediums including the Russellville Voice Home page and the Russellville Voice magazine.
WHAT WILL YOU DO AS A COMMUNITY LEADER?
As a community leader, you will engage your respective community. You will decide what the community is and what it consists of. Then you will engage your community with the content that your community prefers to engage with.
This can be articles, posts, photos, videos, polls and more. As the leader of your community, you will decide how best to support them.
WHAT KIND OF PERSON IS A GOOD FIT FOR THIS POSITION?
We are not particularly interested in any certain background or education to be a good fit as a community leader. If you have an education or background in leadership, this is a plus, but not a requirement.
Mostly the kind of person that would be a good fit here is a natural born leader or one that has passion for your community. If you like working with others on a community project, then this job might be a good fit for you.
If you are looking for a regular income or don’t work well with people with different views, this is not a good fit for you.
