AFD Seeks to Hire an Executive Coordinator

The Alliance for Democracy seeks to hire an Executive Coordinator to head up our Boston-area national office.

The Alliance for Democracy is a progressive-populist membership and chapter-based organization founded in 1996. We seek to end the domination of our politics, our economics, our information, our culture and the environment by large corporations, and to establish a true political democracy and a just society with a sustainable, equitable economy. We advocate a proactive educational approach centered on projects and national campaigns, and we work together with other organizations that share these goals for systemic change.

We seek an individual who is also committed to these goals.

The Alliance is an equal opportunity employer.

The Executive Coordinator works for the national council (our elected board) and reports to the co-chairs and the treasurer. The Coordinator works with members, chapter chairs and project and national campaign chairs to coordinate programs that carry out our mission.

The Executive Coordinator is responsible for promoting membership and chapter growth and development and for overall operation of the organization, including office management, staffing, fundraising and financial oversight. The Coordinator also assists the Editor-in-Chief with regular publications and educational materials and performs media outreach and serves as a spokesperson for the Alliance. Familiarity with software programs is essential. The candidate should have strong oral and written communication skills and experience in networking and grassroots organizing. Compensation is commensurate with experience and includes health benefits and three weeks paid vacation.

We wish to fill this position by September 1. Applications will be accepted starting July 5. Please send a resume, including a cover letter, writing samples, and three letters of recommendation solicited by the candidate by email attachment, if possible, to Stefanie Miller, Secretary, , or materials may be mailed to Stefanie at P.O. Box 34133, Indianapolis, IN 46234.
