Global Greeter Network Volunteers Needed

We are a "not for profit" organisation with one goal in mind:

"To make the world a better place; one Stroll at the time..."

To achieve this, we simply need to grow. However, growth comes with additional responsibilities, duties and a lot of work. We are therefore looking for enthusiastic volunteers that can assist.

We are looking for:

Newsletter Editor

The newsletter editor will be managing the our newsletter. Part of this position is the collection and editing of content for our newsletter. The editor is actively involved in sourcing interesting stories from around the world so the ability to liaise with authors is important.
We are looking for someone with some experience in the publishing field and a good reasonable level of the English language. A knowledge of WP will be handy but not necessary as technical training will be provided.

The foundation uses MailPoet newsletter software...

Forum Moderator

Forum Moderators will be responsible for the general management of the GGN forum. We need moderators at several levels and in several areas. However, the main priority is to find an enthusiastic volunteer to take on a leading role. This means advising the GGN board of improvements, requirements and suggestions to develop and maintain a forum for both Visitors (open forum), Greeters as well as Destination Managers (closed forum). Naturally, forum moderators must apply their common sense to contents that is posted on the forum and deal with inappropriate contents in a friendly, constructive but authoritative manner.

The foundation uses bbPress forum software.

Social Media Coordinator

The social media coordinator’s role will be essential to the success of the GGN vision. The Greeter concept lends itself very well to modern communication and sharing of information through the established social media networks.
We are looking for an outgoing bubbly socialite that is in a position to “own” this part of the marketing strategy.


Advisory comittee members

Are you a strategic thinker? A “blue sky” operator? Then perhaps you see yourself as a representative on the Stroll Buddy Advisory Committee.
You advise the Foundation on issues such as future direction, policies and processes and other strategic and tactical issues of the day.
This is a “ground-up” approach to managing the foundation and the Advisory Committee’s recommendations are very much valued.
Meetings will predominantly be through Skype in English


As we are “Making this world a better place, one Stroll at the time…” this website should be available in a variety of languages.
That is why we are looking for volunteers to assist in translating the website from English into Chinese, Spanish, Italian, German, French, and other languages.


Moving Forward

GGN moving forward

What is going on with the Global Greeter Network?
Two websites??? Proposed annual fees???

We really need to share how we feel about where the Greeter concept stands at the moment and where the concept is growing towards. And with a new voting ahead, are you ready for major changes such as:

  • an annual fee per destination
  • more influence to city marketeers
  • more influence to the big cities
  • less understanding of small city issues
  • minority decisions that affect all destinations

What are your suggestions to move forward? We need to share where you see the Greeter concept in the future. Please let us know below what you think...
