RMC seeks Convio admin/newsletter designer
Our Rocky Mountain Chapter (RMC) Communications Team takes great pride in our monthly Peak and Prairie e-newsletter. Our goal is to provide our members and friends important and timely news, outings and events information, action alerts and more related to the environmental issues we all care about.
Recently our talented newsletter designer and Convio admin, Nathan Cook, had to step down from this position. Now we are seeking a new volunteer who would enjoy using our web-based Convio software to design our monthly newsletter, action alerts, and other email communications. As a member of the chapter's Communications Team, you would be trained to use the straightforward Convio program to accomplish these tasks.
Convio is a popular system that is used by many nonprofits, and a volunteer admin gains free training and experience that could help him or her find a job in nonprofit digital communications. Undergrads in communications at most area colleges should be able to set up an internship credit for the position.
A short newsletter could probably take about two or three hours to put together, but the longer newsletters might take closer to five, six or seven hours. It also depends on experience. It takes less time once you are familiar with how the newsletter is organized, and with how to do things efficiently in Convio.
We also ask that you attend our weekly, one-hour Communications Team meetings, most of which are by telephone conferencing.
If this sounds like something you would enjoy doing—and you are looking for a way to help support the RMC’s goals to explore, enjoy and protect the planet—please contact our RMC Communications Team listserve e-mail at RMC-COMMUNICATIONS-TEAM@lists.sierraclub.org. We would love to hear from you!
