*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Dear Ned,

I hope you will post my one pitch in the JOTW newsletter.

I am a recent college graduate looking for an entry-level position in public relations, communications, or marketing. I most recently served in the AmeriCorps as an outreach intern at an environmental organization in the Pacific Northwest. I have completed two other public relations internships and worked as a reporter for a small-town newspaper. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism, a minor in English, and concentrations in public relations and photojournalism. I currently live in Illinois but would love to relocate.

I have experience in writing, photography, and design. I have experience with the Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, PageMaker, and other programs as well. I have editorial experience from my time as Associate Production Editor for the newspaper’s online edition. I also have some fundraising experience from working with nonprofits as well. If you are looking for someone who will work hard, loves challenges, and is versatile in all aspects of communications, then contact me, and I will be in touch shortly.

Best wishes,

Angie Faller

Could you post the position description below? As you can see, we need a Communications Director to help us be a bit more parsimonious with words.

Thank you,

Susan

16.) PT Salaried Communications Director, Kistler Consulting LLC/American Evaluation Association, Telecommute

Position Description: Communications Director

Part time: .5 – .6 FTE salaried staff

Employer: Kistler Consulting LLC

Primary Client: American Evaluation Association

Unique part-time Communications Director Position appropriate to a

home-based professional.

The Communications Director will work collaboratively to plan and coordinate all aspects of communications primarily for the American Evaluation Association (AEA) and for other clients on occasion. He or she recommends, develops, and implements strategies to ensure bidirectional communication (a) between the association and its stakeholder groups, both internal and external (members, prospective members, associations, governments, media and the general public), and (b) within the association among its constituent groups (board, committees, topical groups, office). The Communications

Director is a senior level part-time position that reports directly to Susan Kistler. Ms. Kistler is the Executive Director of AEA and the owner of Kistler Consulting, an association management company.

Preliminary, general communications goals:

. Inform members specifically, and those in the field generally, about association initiatives and matters that affect their professional practice.

. Enhance the professional community and professional networks in the field.

. Situate the association as a forum for discourse about the

discipline among members, policy makers, and stakeholders.

. Inform the public about the association and the profession, and thus raise the public profile of the association and the discipline.

. Impact discipline-related public policy and legislation.

Achieving the above goals requires a multifaceted approach, one component of which is provision for a Communications Director to work collaboratively with appropriate leadership, including committees, staff, and board, to:

. Develop and maintain an association-wide strategic communications

plan that aligns with the association's mission and values and furthers its strategic objectives;

. Identify and draft key documents regarding the field, the

association, and the membership to serve as foundational resources for

developing other materials and conveying a considered, consistent, message;

. Research and advise the association in its selection and

maximization of communications technologies, ranging from conventional

(e.g., websites and newsletters) to cutting edge (e.g., podcasts and instant messages);

. Improve and manage communications to information outlets ranging

from the traditional press to emerging media such as blogs and wikis;

. Coordinate and facilitate information flow among association

stakeholder groups;

. Draft, edit, and oversee the delivery of a range of communications.

The Communications Director works with a variety of volunteer and staff leaders, usually at a distance via email, phone, and the web, in the development of plans and messaging for the association and thus must possess excellent interpersonal and organizational skills, and a track record of successful collaborative group work, ideally at a distance.

The Communications Director plans and implements a variety of communications projects simultaneously, in a range of media, and targeted at different audiences, and thus must possess experience in project management, outstanding writing and editing skills, and a track record of successful messaging in a variety of media.

The Communications Director advises and informs volunteer and staff leaders regarding communications options, technologies, and content and thus must possess research skills, knowledge of traditional and emergent communications technologies, and the capacity to draft and represent proposals before committees and the Board.

The Communications Director works with members of, and develops products for, a professional association that represents a complex field with a highly educated constituency and thus should possess both the educational and professional background appropriate to such a context. The Communications Director should hold a degree in journalism, communications, or a related field, with an advanced degree preferred. The Communications Director should have a minimum of ten years of experience writing for varied audiences, preferably associated with a social science or related discipline, as well as at least five years of experience as a senior-level manager on project teams.

The Communications Director holds a dual role, both strategic and

operational. It is expected that the Communications Director will devote significant time to the development of written materials, and/or the editing of materials developed by others, to convey the common look, feel, and tone desired by the association. The type of materials anticipated is broad, ranging across options such as press releases, brochures, presentations, advertisements, resource compilations, and news articles, to requests for proposals, forms, and internal planning documents, to blog postings, listserv announcements, inter-association memos, and website updates.

The Communications Director will attend the annual conference held each fall, as well as most Board meetings, in order to be intimately familiar with the issues of the association and to draft communications stemming from those meetings.

Details: This is a part-time year-round salaried position of .5-.6 FTE plus 16 full-time travel days per year. As such, it does not include benefits beyond 15 days of annual flexible leave per year. The position may be undertaken at a distance with the exception of three trips (one convention and two board meetings). The Communications Director must be available via phone for discussion and conference calls multiple times per week. If undertaken at a distance, he or she must own a current desktop computer equipped with Microsoft Office and a high-speed internet connection that is

independent of a phone line. All business travel expenses are paid. All business phone expenses are paid.

The part-time salary for this position is $32,000 to $36,000 per year based on experience.

We realize that the potential volume of work could exceed the half-time allocation. We will set priorities and project goals to constrain the time for the position to approximately 20 hours per week plus travel days.

Anticipated Start Date: October 15, 2007

Anticipated First Travel Dates: November 3-10, 2007 to Baltimore, MD
