Social Media Coordinator Needed!

Our current coordinator is moving away (how dare she!) and we need someone new to keep our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and website up to date. The position is as much work as you’d like to make it – and only requires basic knowledge in social media platforms and a willingness to learn. The only commitment is attending our monthly meetings so you know what to post!

Email our current coordinator Nicole at if you think this is something you’d be interested in.
