Friends House Moscow (FHM), the Friends organization in the Russian Federation, would like to add new energy to  international governing board. It would also like to strengthen its US fundraising arm, Friends House Moscow Support Association (FHMSA), as well as to recruit volunteers. We are looking for: 

Board members - Friends from all over the world willing to engage in all aspects of FHM governance and fund raising

Volunteers who would prefer to contribute ongoing technical expertise (rather than board membership), in areas such as Office 365, accounting systems, website (Wordpress, domain expertise), MailChimp, and Scribus.

Meetings of both the international FHM board and FHMSA can be attended by Zoom and are conducted in English.
