Staff

Leader: Samantha Bailey
Newsletter Publisher: Marianne Sweeny
Technical volunteers: Austin Govella, Nathan Heskew, Bryan Skelton, James Parsons (programmer for Phase I)

Status

Marianne sends out weekly job newsletters. Operations Manager, Noreen Whysel, reports metrics on a monthly basis to the board and produces an annual analysis for board review.

Except for an occasional bug in the system or computer hack, which Austin has fixed, the system has been running smoothly since 2006. We've had suggestions to fully automate the newsletter, but we would lose Marianne's friendly greetings, which is such a delight every week and key to developing an encouragin, community feeling among our job seekers.

The job categories may need to be updated based on skills survey results. It would be interesting to link to a brief definition of each category. The Salary Survey and Skills Inventory projects are possible resources for defining categories, with the understanding that job descriptions do change over time.

Another topic for discussion is when we migrate to aMember, we will again have the option to close off listings to members only.
