The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our Outreach Manager will coordinate Forest Unlimited's messaging across several modes of communication, including our website, email list server, social media, newsletter, magazine articles, press releases, communications to public officials and event tabling. This entails working with the Executive Director and coordinating outreach with our Webmaster, Facebook Supervisor, Press Release Writer, List Server Manager, Tabling Representative, Demonstration Organizer and Editor of our newsletter.
Specifically, the Communications Director will work under the supervision of the Executive Director to determine appropriate topics and messages, write copy for the message and locate appropriate companion photos.

This position will require a highly organized and reliable individual with good writing skills who is conversant with social media.
