Friendly Face Team

The Friendly Face Team operated under the supervision of the Mayor in the Welcoming Committee. All members were volunteers and did not receive staff credit. The team existed between January 2015 and June 2019 to bring the knowledge and resources of senior members to the Welcoming Committee.

A branch of the Membership Department often staffed by newer members just getting involved with TarValon.Net, the Friendly Face Team was especially helpful when Zandera Sommers became Mayor. As the first Mayor who has never been a senior member, the advice and experience of this team was invaluable.

Volunteers were bribed into joining by offering them digital cookies and tantalizing them with the mystery of what goes on behind the scenes in the Welcoming Committee Forum. In addition, small biographies were displayed with the member's picture in a sticky in the Introductions Forum.
