Job description:

NAMSHA is in need of someone to head up our fundraising efforts on a year round basis. This person will be a non-voting BOD member and will be required to host a fundraising event quarterly, working towards a BOD mandated monetary goal for the year. The BOD will have final approval over all events and will provide brainstorming (including a list of options already developed), sounding board and other means of support as deemed necessary on an event by event basis. If desired by the winning candidate, a BOD member can be appointed in an official mentoring capacity. The coordinator may select a staff of one helper, pending BOD approval.

The monetary goal for the March 2013 - NAN 2014 time period is $10,000.


The position will require someone who can be online and visible to both the BOD and the hobby public at large on a daily basis and communicate with both in a respectful, courteous and prompt manner. A successful candidate will need to be highly motivated, organized, well-written/spoken and have excellent event planning skills. Previous marketing and/or advertising experience will be considered to be a plus. A good working knowledge of MS Office - especially Excel and Word will be required, as well as good monetary handling procedures.

Monthly reports to the BOD for inclusion in the NAMHSA News will be required as well as any requested update made by a voting BOD member. All events will need to be run in a legal manner for the state/county/country they are occurring.


This is a paid position, with the opportunity for results based bonuses, to be paid at the end of each 12 month fundraising cycle. (First payment would be after NAN 2014.) The base is $300 a year. The BOD will set a fundraising minimum and goal each year, based on previous efforts, estimates and potential opportunity. If the yearly goal is made, an $100 bonus will be paid. If the fundraising efforts exceed 125% of the year's goal, an additional $150 will be paid. Any efforts exceeding 150% of goal will be paid an additional $200. (The maximum payment to be equal to $500.)

If the goal is not met, the BOD reserves the right to review the fundraising coordinator's efforts or may reconsider the goal. Staff and helpers are not eligible for payment but may be given preference if applying for the position in the future.

Application Process:

Interested parties should send their application to Teresa Buzzell, NAMHSA President at: with name, contact information, a paragraph stating your qualifications for the position and a small list of potential fundraising ideas. Applications that do not contain all requested items may be disregarded by the BOD. The closing date is March 10, 2013.

Thank you for your interest in NAMHSA!
