Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help run one of our local chapters of the Nomad Investor Clubs on Meetup. We appreciate your interest.

Nomad Investor Clubs is a volunteer run organization that relies heavily on volunteers to coordinate and facilitate the local meetups chapters on Thursday evenings.

How Are Chapters Organized?

Most weeks, our local meetup chapter will have a discussion meeting. In some ways, we operate like a book club where Nomads all read the same book each week then get together to discuss it. Except… we’re not reading a book… we’re watching a class on a specific topic relating to the Nomad investing model.

The classes are taught live by James on Tuesday evenings at 6 PM MST. They are open to the public and free to attend. All Nomads and volunteers are encouraged to attend the webinar live to be able to get the content, ask questions and get answers. Plus, you should attend the class live just in case the recording fails (which does happen).

We do attempt to record each class and make that recording available for a very limited amount of time before it gets saved away in the archives for Premium Nomads only. The recording of the class from Tuesday is usually available for everyone for free from late on Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday up until the meetup. After the meetup on Thursday, the recording is archived and only available to Premium Nomads and we start allowing registration for next week’s class.

Each local chapter of Nomad Investor Club usually has 1 to 3 volunteers.

What Do Volunteers Do

Volunteers are expected to:

  • Promote and uphold the “Go Giver” philosophy and culture of the clubs (there’s a 4 minute video on the principles of the “Go Giver” book below)
  • Attend the classes on Tuesday evening (or at least watch the video recording of the class on Wednesday or Thursday before the meetup so they know what the discussion is about)
  • Attend most meetups on Thursday
  • Work together harmoniously with other volunteers and coordinate to make sure another volunteer will cover for you if you can’t make a meetup
  • Coordinate a venue for the Thursday meetups – Starbucks is fine for your first few meetups until you outgrow it
  • Greet Nomads and make them feel comfortable and welcome and
  • Encourage discussions on Thursday’s meetup with Nomads about Tuesday’s class topic

“Go Giver” Philosophy

The Nomad Investor Clubs culture is based largely on the principles taught in the “Go Giver” book (summarized in the 4 minute video below).

Volunteer Benefits

Volunteers get a free Premium Nomad membership as our way of saying, “thank you for volunteering!”

They also get the satisfaction of knowing they’re being active in the Nomad community and helping their fellow Nomads on the Nomad path.

Step 4

Contact James to let him know that you’re interested in volunteering.

jamesorr@gmail.com (this is what James prefers but you can call too)
Mobile: (970) 225-6989

Let him know:

  • Your full name
  • Email address
  • Mobile number in case he needs to reach you during a Thursday meetup
  • What city of Nomad Investor Club you’re interested in volunteering for

If you’re the first volunteer, we’ll need to find a venue to meet at. New, small chapters can usually meet at a Starbucks until you start having larger numbers of Nomads attend.

Step 5

Once you’ve volunteered at your first meetup or two, ask James to upgrade you to a free Premium Nomad.

Who Pays For The Meetup?

Nomad Investor Clubs LLC pays the cost of the Meetup Pro fee (about $35 per month), the technology for the classes and website, etc. We expect volunteers to find free venues to host the meetups and volunteers should not spend money on the meetups.

Volunteers are not required to invest or spend any money related to the running of the Nomad Investor Clubs, but volunteers may want to know how the Nomad Investor Clubs funds its operations and can afford to provide the classes, technology and pay for the cost of Meetup: the chapters are expecting a small percentage of the Nomads to voluntarily “chip in” to the support the club and/or upgrade to Premium Nomad. We are also seeking real estate agent and lender sponsors to offset the cost of running the club. We may also from time to time look for additional opportunities to help fund the Nomad mission like bringing in a guest that teaches a topic other than Nomad a few times a year. James, who is a real estate broker may also refer local Nomad buyers to a real estate agent in exchange for a referral fee.
