If you do not meet this qualification and are interested in one of the core positions (deputy director or director of finance), please submit your application anyway as yours will still be considered.
For the following three questions, please answer by filling in the name of the event that you volunteered for as well as the role that you filled. For example, "Welcome Party, Door", "Christmas Caroling, Caroler", or "Sumo, Judge".
* Executive director - Oversee the board of directors, cultivate a respectful relationship with ALTs and residents of Akita, lead and/or organize events and volunteer opportunities, and maintain the vision of the organization. After being chosen, the executive director will also be responsible for appointing the other members of the board. * Deputy director - Assume the role of executive director as needed and aid them in their duties, particularly in relation to leading events. * Director of finance - Assume responsibility of all financial affairs of the organization including collecting money at events, sending donations to charities, and managing the Charity Akita bank account. It is mandatory for the director of finance to maintain a public record of all expenditures in accordance with publicly available documents explaining their organization.
In addition to those core positions, the current board of directors feels like the following positions ought to be filled in order to successfully carry out the work that Charity Akita has been doing.
* Secretary - Note taking, copywriting and managing the organization's email account. * Social Media Manager - Heading event promotion and managing social media accounts (Including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). * Community/Charity Liaison - Contacting venues, negotiating deals and providing translations (this position should be filled by someone with high Japanese proficiency)* English Cafe Coordinator - As they occur every month, it would be best to have one member whose primary responsibility is organizing English Cafes.
Please note that due to the volunteer nature of the work we do, members of the board are often asked to take on duties and responsibilities other than for those explicitly stated in their role description.
