This job requires strong skills in database management (Past Perfect & QuickBooks) as well as proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite.

An important function of this position is the processing of membership renewals and annual fund/donations/grants. Preference will be given to candidates who possess understanding, skills and enthusiasm for innovating and developing new processes in these areas.

The current schedule for this position is Tuesday-Friday 9:30-2:30 (some flexibility in scheduling is permitted and can be discussed).
