Search Begins for Membership Coordinator
We’re very excited to announce the creation of this new position to enhance the experience and engagement of all of our members. In addition to coordinating the process of welcoming our guests and helping them through the process of joining, the Membership Coordinator will work with our entire congregation in helping to connect member interests and skills with volunteer needs. She or he will need to be adept at managing large amounts of data while being comfortable in one-on-one and group conversations with guests, new members and ongoing members—at home before spreadsheets and at ease in deep discussion about the need for our members to support the congregation with their time, energy and financial resources. This three-quarter time position will require regular Sunday morning responsibilities and the capacity to work a flexible schedule including occasional weekend activities in addition to Sunday mornings. Ideally, this person will also have extensive experience in the congregation, a proven record of volunteer engagement, and evidence of consistent, generous support of our mission and ends. UUCC policies commit us to compensate all professional staff in ways that meet or exceed the UUA’s Fair Compensation Guidelines including salary and benefits. For more details about the Membership Coordinator position, please refer to the most current issue of Voices. If you are interested in being considered for this position, please send your resume along with a message detailing why you are interested and what you might bring to this role to our Adult Programming Coordinator, Martha Kniseley at email@example.com
