Interested in a great volunteer opportunity?

2016 Stepping Out volunteers


The Oregon Chapter would like to fill several positions!

Portland Support Group Leader
Social Media Manager
Board Member(s)

Please share this with any friends or family that may be interested!

Portland Support Group Leader:  We are currently meeting online due to the pandemic, but this group typically meets in downtown Portland, six times a year.  The support group leader will determine a topic, arrange occasional guest speakers, and facilitate the meetings.  Materials and training are available!

Social Media Manager:  We are looking for someone to manage the Oregon Chapter’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.  This may include some content creation, promotion of events, and engaging with users.

Board Members:

  • Plan and help with all aspects of events like our walks and educational seminars.
  • Vote on decisions that need to be made about the chapter’s finances and activities.
  • Brainstorm for ideas for our chapter - awareness, education, fundraising, etc.
  • Elect board officers and appoint other non-board positions within the chapter.
  • Communicate with and take direction from the national office, and stay up to date with their policies and procedures.
  • Make sure everything we do supports the mission statement of the Scleroderma Foundation.
  • Board meetings are held online on Zoom, so you do not need to live in the Portland area! No board experience is required - this would be a great entry-level opportunity. Board members do not need to have scleroderma, but must be willing to learn about the disease and the Scleroderma Foundation.
