Last summer, the WMCC board met at Hanging Mountain for a weekend long retreat. Between working out ways up the wonderful routes, the board worked on strategic goals as well as how to meet them. As the number of climbers continues to grow, the impact of climbers on our local crags continues to increase. The WMCC manages more properties, hosts more events, and has more members than ever before. In order to build the capacity of the organization to continue our important work, the WMCC is creating a part time, paid position to support the board in managing day to day operations.
The WMCC is looking for someone with experience in event planning, fundraising, networking, social media outreach, and a familiarity with property rights and conservation work. It’s crucial that this person brings with them a love for Western, MA rock climbing and building a strong, equitable, and vibrant climbing community. The Operating Executive would work closely and in conjunction with the Board of Directors.
We are seeking to hire a part time Operating Executive starting April 1st, 2023. Applications are due by February 8th, 2023 at 6pm ET. WMCC is an equal opportunity employer and encourages people from all backgrounds to apply.
