CCC Board Secretary Position Application

9/29 Update: This application is now closed


The Carolina Climbers Coalition is currently seeking a new Secretary to join our volunteer Board of Directors, with the position beginning in October 2021.  

The Secretary position is responsible for managing social media posts, including event information, volunteer trail days, access updates and general climbing.  Responsibilities also include managing Board Meeting minutes and helping with monthly newsletters.  

Folks interested should be proficient in managing social media such as Instagram and Facebook, and be well organized with communication.  And above all else, anyone interested should bring the psych for pulling together the Carolina climbing community.

There is currently one position open. We hope to elect a candidate by our Hound Ears annual meeting at the beginning of October.
