Paid part-time position as LEYM Worker

Could you or someone you know be the next Yearly Meeting Worker?

A paid part-time position working from home – currently 120 hours a year

If you know someone who might be interested in the position,
please bring this job opening to their attention.

The Lake Erie Yearly Meeting worker’s primary task is serving as webmaster, which includes an annual update of the website following LEYM’s Annual Meeting in late July – early August. The Yearly Meeting worker manages listservs (email lists) and gmail accounts for LEYM clerks and others as needed. Other tasks are ongoing or done on an annual basis, such as collecting annual statistical reports from each meeting and worship group. Additional projects are assigned at the discretion of the presiding clerk, who oversees the Yearly Meeting worker. The position requires a self-starter who can work independently and keep track of when particular tasks need to be done. Reports on work done and issues that have arisen are made to Executive Committee and Annual Sessions.

This is a collaborative position which involves working with others, particularly the database manager. Familiarity with Lake Erie Yearly Meeting Friends and business is needed, so attending most Representative Meetings and Annual Sessions is a good idea, especially in order to track when changes need to be made to LEYM’s Policies and Procedures manual. While some tasks need to be done in a timely fashion, particularly the work following Annual Sessions, others can be done at the worker’s discretion.

Hours and Pay. Currently, the position is for 120 hours a year at a rate of $20 per hour. The position is that of an independent contractor rather than an employee. The worker provides the computer and common software, and works from home. Reimbursement is available with receipts for out-of-pocket expenses such as copies provided for a meeting.
