CASA is looking for an office manager. We're in the midst of a renewal, with
a new executive and lots of plans for growth for the future. We're looking
for someone who can grow with us.
This is the ad we posted to Craig's List. The address to send applications
to is CASA_job@...
. Please note resumes sent to my personal address
will be deleted unread.
This position is *very* part time, no more than four hours a week (two
two-hour shifts, one early in the week, one late. We would set the days with
your schedule in mind, but once set, you'd be expected to work the same ones
each week). The office is in San Francisco, near Van Ness and Union St.
Please feel free to forward this to friends outside the a cappella
community - knowledge of a cappella and CASA is not nearly as important as
the ability to do the job.

- checking the mail (electronic, snail and voice) and forwarding queries to
the appropriate departments. This may entail some visits to the post office,
FedEx or UPS.
- order fulfillment
- dealing with member questions
- updating databases (using proprietary software)
- coordinating information with the heads of internal programs
- sending of certificates, back issues and other such requested material.
- handling legal paperwork (501c(3), Board minutes, bylaws, etc) when

What the right office manager will have:

- a desire to be in on the ground floor of a growing organization in the
midst of a professional restructure.

DOE, the position will pay between $17 and $20 p/h. Keep in mind that this
is *only four hours a week*. The ideal office manager is someone who is
looking to supplement their income - if you are an unemployed professional
looking for full-time work and likely to ditch a very part-time one when the
full-time job comes along, this isn't the right job for you.
