1) Give this handbook a full read.

2) If you’re not already familiar with NTEN, please spend some time going through the NTEN website and sign-up for an upcoming Member Orientation.

3) Join some of NTEN’s other online community groups. You can learn a lot from your peers and see what they are doing to make things work. The more engaged you are in the NTEN community, the more sustainable your group is likely to be.

4) Meet other local and online community volunteers via our organizer forum and Slack team (see section below). Introduce yourself. Ask questions. Know that you are never without support.
