Seeking Volunteer AHG Chapter Coordinator
If you are looking for an opportunity to work with exceptional people, and a rewarding way to be of service to the herbal community, we encourage you to consider becoming the next AHG Chapter Coordinator. This is a volunteer position that can be done from the comforts of your home, and at whatever time is convenient for you.
The ideal candidate for this position is someone with good organizational ability as well as good written/email communication skills. Having been an officer or involved in a local chapter would be beneficial as it gives you an insight into concerns/challenges of the chapters, but it is not mandatory.
It would be helpful to have a moderate understanding of Excel, Dropbox, and online mail services (i.e.: Mail Chimp, Constant Contact), or be someone who would be comfortable learning those tools.
For the most part, this position entails answering inquiries and sending information to prospective chapters, answering questions from existing chapters, keeping a current log of chapter officer names and contact information, keeping MailChimp up-to-date with office contact information, and periodically sending communications out to the chapters. For the majority of the year, this typically requires about 1 - 2 hours a month, however in Jan/Feb when annual reports are due, this position will require more time (about 20 – 30 hours, or about 4 -6 hours a week for 4 – 5 weeks). This includes sending out a notice when annual reports are due, and as the reports come in checking them for accuracy and completeness, checking the subscription status of chapter members, and updating chapter officer contact information.
Once a year there is a chapter meeting at the AHG Symposium. This meeting is an opportunity for chapters to share what they have been doing with one another. It is recommended that the Chapter Coordinator attend and lead the chapter meeting at the Symposium.
To apply, email resume and cover letter to email@example.com with subject line “Volunteer Chapter Coordinator.”
