Hey MYD’ers, it saddens us to say that our current Treasurer Reggie Thomas and Field Director Colin Campbell are stepping down from their posts due to changing professional circumstances. That means that we need to find intrepid MYD members to fill these leadership positions to continue our awesome trajectory in 2011!
Simply put, the Treasurer makes sure we stay on the right side of the law; takes care of all of the finances of the organization, including our bank account, writing and cashing checks, keeping the books, collecting dues, managing credit cards, etc. We’ll also need someone with a good head on their shoulders when tax season hits — we’ve done so well on fundraising this year that we’re entering a new threshold from a compliance perspective. People with finance and legal backgrounds are definitely encouraged to apply!
The Field Director runs all of our campaign work. This is a difficult position to fill — it requires tenacity and an ironclad will, with a very friendly and very patient exterior. If you are detail-oriented and can relentlessly turn out volunteers to knock on doors and phonebank on behalf of important issues and great candidates — look no further, this is the gig for you!
You can read up on the formal descriptions for these roles in our Constitution as well.
Download the application for Treasurer HERE. Download the application for Field Director HERE. Both are due by 3PM on Sunday, August 28th. [Note: If we don’t get the right folks applying, there is the possibility we’ll leave a position vacant.]
