We are gearing up for Bike to Work Day 2107 (May 11) and are looking to hire a coordinator on a fixed-rate contractor. Bike Walk Alameda will pay $1000 to the right candidate to run Alameda’s participation in Bike to Work Day. We expect this to take about 40 to 50 hours of work to organize and coordinate; spread out between now and the event, with many of those hours needed in early May.
Responsibilities include (but not limited to):
- Coordination of Volunteers
- Organize five Energizer Stations (volunteers, locations, food donations, table items)
- Coordinate Alameda’s BTWD bag stuffing with Bike East Bay and items for stuffing
- Coordinate with Safe Routes to School coordinators
- Organize Bike Home From Work event at Alameda location
- Poster (Use Regional Poster)
- Sun newspaper insert (solicit articles on deadline)
- Street banner changes
- Reporting to Board
- Coordinate membership solicitation on Bike To Work Day
- Work with the BWA Program Administrator
We have an establish process for how this can be completed – you’d need to be able to pull it all together in a timely manner. Please email letter of interest and resume to email@example.com by Jan 13th.
Please consider a tax-deductible one time or recurring donation to help support our mission of making Alameda a safer and more enjoyable place to walk and bike. When you donate to Bike Walk Alameda, you also let the community know that you support safer streets. We rely on donations and memberships to help keep our organization healthy.
Thank you, we appreciate your support!
