This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


Texas Consilium is working to identify industry leading companies in Texas, or those who serve and support Texas businesses.  Our key objectives are focused on connecting with (a) potential nominees for the Texas Consilium Business Excellence Award, and (b) potential Texas Consilium Partner who wish to connect with Texas businesses of excellence.

Multiple volunteer roles will involve:
  • Online research of businesses and entry into or updating of Texas Consilium's database.
  • Prioritizing Nominee and Partner prospects based upon available information.
  • Telephone or email connection with Nominee and Partner prospects to identify decision makers and qualify prospects.
  • Coordinating with Texas Consilium personnel for follow up.
There are two distinct roles here: (a) online research and database development, and (b) reaching out mostly by phone to confirm information and establish the correct contact person.  Volunteers may choose the role they would prefer, or may do both.

For either role, Volunteers will be accessing Texas Consilium's Salesforce CRM system and will receive appropriate training.  This may be a particularly attractive opportunity for students with an interest in marketing, data management, sales or most any area of business.

I am interested to volunteer as the work is related to what I am studying right now. I would like to know more about the event coming up and how I can contribute my part as a management student.

Hello team,
I am interested in this opportunity to volunteer as it is aligned with my present course of study. I would like to have more details - hours expected, daily schedule, physical versus remote engagement, etc.

Thank you.

Hope - Thank you for your interest. This work can all be done remotely. After we have an initial orientation on Zoom, your work can be performed within your schedule on weekdays, evenings or weekends -- whenever it works best for you. If you would like to join our team for this, I will be glad to schedule a Zoom meeting and orientation with you. Is this of interest to you? Jim Ratchford, Executive Director
