If one of these positions appeal to you, please contact the Chief Druid for officer duties and obligations. When you volunteer, make the role only as difficult as you want and seek help from others to lighten the load. We're not looking for martyrs here, just someone to make decisions and organize a gaggle of wild druids. You can share the roles with friends and fellow grove members. The more people that help, the better your grove will function.
