    "volunteer to the chaiperson of ..." and "volunteer to chaiperson of ..."

    Hello.

    National Association of Women’s Gymnastics Judges
    Sheila Ragle volunteered to be the chairperson of the registration committee.

    Kid Sense - Parenting -> General Parenting - The Imperfect Parent
    And just when I thought grown adults couldn’t act any sillier, I went and volunteered to be chairperson of "Movie Night" at my daughter’s elementary school.

    1. volunteer to the chaiperson of ...
    2. volunteer to chaiperson of ...
    Is there any difference in meaning?

    Thank you.

    Your quotes have "volunteer to be chairperson" and "volunteer to be the chairperson". Stick with those.

    RonBee,

    Thanks for the response, but I'm afraid I don't get what you mean.

    Take a look at your first post. The verb "be" is not in the sentences that you have numbered 1 and 2, yet "be" is included in the sentences above. The sentences don't work without "be".
