Opportunity Details
CommentsRecycling Revisited is a Registered not-for-profit organization. We are moving into our 7th year, after a year of completing 5 projects simultaneously: a documentary, 2 books, a searchable database, and a new website (recyclingrevisited.org). We are still learning more about the requirements of being registered. Our deep roots are in a citizen action with 1,000 members in Burlington (Citizens' Committee for Pollution Control, 1970-1983: CCPC). Our Mission is to use the 5 "products" that are largely about our deep historical roots in CCPC - to inspire people to take action on their current concerns about the environment in these days of climate change. We have a Board, Development Committee, Subcommittees, Volunteers and Friends of Recycling Revisited.

DutiesSharing your experience and expertise in website development, social media, and public communications. We are rebuilding a team of four members to share responsibilities for managing our website, social media and general communications. 
All volunteers are invited to attend the Development Committee/Planning Committee meetings on a drop-in or regular basis. 
 
This Sub-committee would need to act within the policies and general direction of the Development Committee and Board, but would have a great deal of discretion and flexibility. Members would need to be committed to swing into action as effectively as possible when a project is being planned and activated (within reason). They would be managing or directing our social media as an ongoing responsibility.
