The executive committee of IASPM-US is currently seeking applicants to fill the position of Assistant Web Editor.
The Assistant Web Editor commits to a 21-month volunteer position that begins May 2016. In the first nine months, primary responsibilities include managing social media networks for IASPM-US (Facebook, Twitter, Mixcloud), writing the monthly IASPM-US website email digest, and assisting the Executive Web Editor, Greg Weinstein, in generating content for the website. After the 2017 meeting of IASPM-US, the Assistant Web Editor will take on the position of Executive Web Editor, becoming the primary point person for website-related tasks, including: maintaining and generating content for the website; working with the executive committee and program committee to keep the organization updated about elections, annual conference details, and other IASPM-US-related business; addressing the executive committee and broader membership with an annual report at the IASPM-US conference; and training the incoming Assistant Web Editor. The executive committee is particularly interested in applicants who are adept at social media networking, blogging, and content curation. While there are no technical prerequisites to the position, a working knowledge of WordPress is advantageous. There is a modest stipend for the Executive Web Editor.
To apply for the position, please send a 300-500 word personal statement to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a brief biography, list of accomplishments, and what skills and ideas you would contribute to the position. Applications must be received by April 29, 2016.
