The Membership Coordinator will serve as the first point of contact for the Mendocino Voice’s community of readers and supporters. The position includes both business-side administrative tasks requiring an ease with technology as well as community outreach and engagement tasks requiring strong communications skills.
The ideal candidate is passionate about engaging with the residents of Mendocino County and our organization’s supporters, connecting people with reliable information, and helping our team build a foundation for long-term sustainability at The Mendocino Voice. We are looking for applicants who can work independently, are excited and willing to initiate projects and build community, and have a vision for personal growth in this position.

You will handle customer service issues, talk to supporters about their gifts, and listen to the community for what they would like to see in their local news outlet. You will report to the publisher, Kate Maxwell.
