UPDATE: The call for the SFRA outreach officer has been extended for another week. If you are interested, let me know! The new deadline is Thursday, March 31.

During our bylaw revisions last year we created a number of positions to help modernize the SFRA Executive Committee, as well as more clearly delineate responsibilities and roles. In that spirit, we would like to invite applications for the unpaid, volunteer position of SFRA Outreach Officer.

Position Description:

The outreach officer will organize, in coordination with the vice president, the various internet and social media outlets, in order to publicize and further the goals and mission of the organization. They will also be responsible for seeking opportunities for collaboration and outreach with other scholarly organizations, especially organizations that serve populations that have historically been underrepresented in SFRA. The outreach officer will be appointed by the Executive Committee and will serve a three-year term, which can be terminated by either the outreach officer or the Executive Committee. The outreach officer shall not be a member of the Executive Committee.

If you have questions about the position, please, reach out — and we would love to see your application. If you are interested in serving as the next outreach officer for the organization, please send a (short!) letter of interest and a CV to gerrycanavan@gmail.com by March 15, 2022.
