You make things happen: We’ve learned that subject matter expertise is a plus, but it can’t make up for curiosity and a willingness to dive in and make it work.

You value appreciation: You understand the importance of making community members feel welcome and appreciating their contributions.

You’re a good communicator: Organizers must be responsive and keep NTEN in the loop. Your questions, needs, successes, failures—we want to hear it all—and we need you to respond to our communications.
