Position Available: President, SCA, Inc.
The Board of Directors of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. is currently accepting applications for the position of President of the SCA Inc. This is a position requiring approximately 10-20 hours per week and includes a stipend.
The President is the principal spokesperson for the SCA, Inc. This officer is a liaison between the SCA, Inc. and outside professionals such as attorneys, accountants and insurance representatives. This officer is a contact for the SCA, Inc. for law enforcement, government agencies, and claimants against the SCA, Inc.
The President works with the Vice President of Corporate Operations to coordinate much of the day-to-day modern operation of the Corporation, and supervises and facilitates communication between many of the Society Officers.
The President is required to execute contracts necessary to properly conduct the SCA's business, and may delegate similar responsibilities. The President is also responsible for such legal matters as contracts and merchandising. The President advises the Board of Directors on areas of corporate governance and policy issues. The President may be assigned other duties by the Board.
Qualifications for the position include excellent written and oral communication skills, the ability to work independently to prioritize tasks and meet deadlines, and strong computer skills. Experience in a modern business setting, organizational ability and problem-solving skills are a must. Experience in a modern non-profit organization and prior experience at the Corporate or Society level of the SCA are desirable, but not required.
Applicants must be available to attend quarterly meetings of the Board of Directors, typically held over a Friday and a Saturday. They must also be available for approximately four conference call meetings per year, typically during weekday evenings. As a great deal of the Board's business occurs via the Internet, familiarity and basic skills with a computer, MS Office software (specifically Microsoft Word and Excel), and e-mail are required. The SCA provides a laptop computer, but the successful applicant must have reliable access to the Internet.
Hard copies of résumés (both professional and SCA, including offices held and awards received) must be sent to Renee Signorotti for the attention of the Board and the President at:
SCA Corporate Office
P.O. Box 360789
