How can I help? What are the different roles for volunteers?   

We have two roles for our volunteers: Point of Contact (POC) and Chapter Leader.    


What does a Point of Contact (POC) do?   

A POC serves as a "contact person" for us in their community. When we have an upcoming activity or need for a volunteer, we will let you know! A POC is not obligated to say "yes," but is willing to receive the request.     


What will I need to do as a chapter leader?

Your basic role is “organizer” and advocate. You’ll also be expected to train and motivate your members.  Basic computer and social media skills are necessary in order to communicate effectively with our leadership and your members. Chapter Leaders start out hosting an "Our Sacred Honor" party and monitor a chapter email account. 


 

Do I have to have political experience to be a local chapter leader?  

Absolutely not! Many of our grassroots leaders are new to political activity. Real change is going to happen in our local communities, not in Washington, DC.  American citizens like you are raising their hands to get involved and make a difference.  Anyone, 18 years or older, can sign up to be a chapter leader - soccer moms, teachers, retired grandparents, construction workers, unemployed job seekers, manufacturing workers, business owners, farmers…well, you get the idea!  Sign up today – you’ll fit right in!


 

I’ve decided to start a chapter. How do I get started?  

It’s easy – sign up and we’ll be in touch!


 

Now that I’ve signed up to start a chapter, what’s next? 

We recommend you launch your chapter by hosting an “Our Sacred Honor” party.  All you need are three or four like-minded people to get started. Sign up here for an "Our Sacred Honor” Party or start with another activity.


  

Do I need to meet every week or month? 

No - how often you meet is your decision. Some chapters meet every week, while others get together only for special events and activities. 


  

I just signed up and I'm ready to go! What's next? 

  • Our national staff will work with you to create an email account for your chapter. 

  • Check out our “What’s Next” page and pick your first activity (we recommend hosting an “Our Sacred Honor” party to begin).

  • Promote your chapter everywhere you go.  Let folks know what you’re doing and encourage them to get off the sidelines and get engaged.

  • Get connected with your state leadership.

  • Ask your state leadership for help connecting with our Patriot Voices national network on Facebook. 

 


How do I create a chapter email?

 


 

What types of resources will I receive if I sign up to start a chapter?  

Once you sign up, our staff will contact you to confirm basic information and we'll send you a Chapter Leader Kit which includes an official Chapter Certificate, handbook, t-shirt, “Our Sacred Honor” DVD with discussion guide, signs, stickers, and literature.


 

If I have questions later, who can I ask? 

When you sign up, we'll connect you with your state leadership so they can help guide you. In addition, our national grassroots staff is available if you have questions. Email us with your questions!


 

How much will it cost me to start a local chapter?  Will I receive any funding to help with costs? 

Most of our recommended grassroots activities have little cost associated with them.  Although Patriot Voices does not directly fund local grassroots activities, we do support you with resources for “Our Sacred Honor” parties, supplies for booths, etc.  Other chapter costs will need to be incurred by your chapter members.  If you have specific requests or questions, email: contact@patriotvoices.com 


 

 

What if I live in a very “blue” area and have difficulty finding others to join my chapter? 

No matter where you live, there are people who believe in conservative principles. You just need to be resourceful and persistent! If you’re struggling with this, click here for tips on connecting and recruiting chapter members!  And check in with your state chairs  for their help and guidance.


 

What size should a chapter be?  

Local chapters can be all sizes! Some have 3 or 4 and others have 100! It will depend on many factors: geographical location, growth potential, what kind of community you live in, how committed you are to growing and welcoming new members, and how active you want to be.


  

Can I ask someone to help me lead my chapter? 

YES! We encourage this!  


 

Can our Patriot Voices local chapter endorse candidates? 

Candidate endorsements are made by our political action committee at the national staff level. Most of our endorsements will be for federal races (Congress and U.S. Senate).  If you wish to recommend someone in your area for an endorsement, email our Political Director, Jessica Colon. As an individual, you are free to support candidates. However, you will need to be careful not to use your Patriot Voices title or chapter to support non-endorsed candidates. If you have any questions about this, contact Jessica Colon.  


  

Can I print my own business cards? 

Yes, in fact we encourage it and recommend you carry them at all times! You never know when a networking opportunity will present itself. Here is a suggested format for you to use when creating your card. Here and here are files you can incorporate into your design. 


  

What if I need additional signs and supplies for our chapter or event?  

Send an email and include your name, phone number, chapter name and location, your specific request (i.e. 20 palm cards, 2 signs), how you intend to use the resources, the date you need them by, and your shipping address.  Once we receive your request, we will contact you as quickly as we can.


  

Can our chapter participate or host an event that is not listed on the “What’s Next” page?  

Yes. These grassroots activities are suggestions to help you get active in your community and make a difference.  Just make sure your activities line up with the mission and values of Patriot Voices.  At the beginning of your project/activity, check with your state leadership for their guidance. If you’d like to suggest an activity be added to our toolkit, send us an email. 


  

What if I have questions not listed on this FAQ page?  

Send us an email with your questions and we’ll be in touch soon!  Include your name, the location of your chapter (or potential chapter) and your phone number.
