GPS Editor needed: a new editor for the GPS is needed. This is a fun way to learn more about the Club, without too much commitment, about 30 minutes a week. Good training provided; only skills needed are knowing how to use Microsoft Word (or equivalent).
Compass Editor needed: a new editor for the monthly Compass newsletter will be needed starting in January 2014. The current editor, Clare Reda, has volunteered for a couple of years, and provided strong leadership during a period of great change for the Compass to using a blog format. Some computer skills needed, but good training will be provided. An excellent opportunity for an aspiring writer/journalist/activist who enjoys the outdoors and creating community! Contact Clare Reda, email@example.com.
