Open Board Positions at the WNBA-NYC

The Women’s National Book Association chapter in New York City is currently looking to fill two board positions: Treasurer and Chair of Publisher Outreach. These are only available to WNBA members ($20 for students and $50 for non-students) and both are excellent ways to get more involved in volunteering, experience nonprofit work, network, and promote women in the book world.

Treasurer

The Treasurer works with the President, Membership Chair, and Programs VPs to create and maintain the annual budget. The treasurer also handles receipts, reimbursements, payments, and other chapter finances. The new Treasurer will start at the end of May 2017, and will receive full training from our current Treasurer, Andrea Baron.

The most successful applicants will be organized, detailed, and comfortable keeping a budget.

Chair of Publisher Outreach

 The Chair of Publisher Outreach is a new position created to promote successful collaboration between the WNBA-NYC and local publishers. The chairperson will be responsible for maintaining relationships with publishers in order to give our chapter increased visibility in the industry, ties to local authors, and potential partnerships for events, donations, and other opportunities. This position is open to start immediately.

The most successful applicants will have some experience in the NYC publishing industry, though this is not required. Applicants should excel at communication and organization.

Anyone interested in being considered for one of these board positions, please email Hannah Bennett at president@wnba-nyc.org with a brief explanation of your interest in the position and a current resume.
