The average time commitment is between 2-4 hours per month. The time range depends on the maturity of the group, the size and strength of the organizing team, and whether or not group holds monthly community calls.
Most organizers are able to incorporate forum management duties into their everyday life–creating and responding to posts is something they’d do anyway. For groups that only have discussion boards, and no online events, the organizer time commitment is likely 2-4 hours per month. For groups that hold online events, the organizer time commitment is slightly more.
We ask organizers to serve for one year terms, and in most cases we offer the opportunity to renew their agreement each year.
