Are you passionate about youth education, health or school gardens and agriculture? If so, consider sharing your talents as a member of The Agrarian Adventure Board of Directors. We are currently seeking to fill two board positions to complete a two year term supporting the mission of our nonprofit organization to use experiential education to connect students to the sources of their food and empower them to transform their lives and food culture in positive ways. The two open chair positions are listed below, however board members do not have to fill these specific roles and can contribute other skills collaborating on fundraising, evaluation and programs. Complete this google form by March 15th to apply. Questions can be sent to email@example.com.
The Communications Chair works with staff and board members to manage The Agrarian Adventure social media, website and newsletter communications. This primarily includes use of Instagram, Facebook, Mailchimp and WordPress, but also involves working with the team to organize and store photographs of The Agrarian Adventure programs and related photo permissions. A successful candidate need not have experience on all of these platforms as they will work as a team and the programs are relatively easy to learn.
The Finance Chair oversees The Agrarian Adventure expenditures and manages staff payment including receiving invoices and reimbursement requests as well as issuing checks and tax forms. This is a good position for someone who has an interest in developing these skills or someone who already has experience in finance or accounting who wants to contribute to their community.
The Agrarian Adventure board members contribute to stewardship of the organization including support of our mission and raising funds for mission-based programming. While all board members collaborate on fundraising, a small subset takes the lead by generating creative ideas, communicating with community partners and developing yearly fundraising goals and timelines.
