SSU Outreach and events coordinator changes

January 4, 2019

Following the recent departure of Alisha O’Loughlin, former Outreach & Events Coordinator Eris Weaver has been promoted to the position of Executive Director.  With prior experience in environmental activism, public health education, and organizational development, she’s excited to continue the upward trajectory initiated by her predecessors!

We’ve added League Certified Instructor Brettt Roncelli to our education team, and will be welcoming SSU planning student Gloria Hensley as an intern for the Spring 2019 semester.

Do you know someone – or are YOU that someone? – who would be a perfect fit for the now-vacant Outreach & Events position? Read the job description and application details.

The Outreach and Events Coordinator is often the first point of contact for SCBC members, volunteers and community partners and hence forms many people’s initial impressions of the organization. To be effective, the Outreach and Events Coordinator must be personable, resourceful, diplomatic, and eager to help.

SCBC’s dues-paying members provide both financial and political support toward accomplishing the organization’s mission. SCBC’s volunteers are also critical to overall success, as they enable the Bike Parking Program and assist during SCBC and partner events.

The Outreach and Events Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the SCBC membership program, including processing payments, corresponding with members, and coordinating efforts toward expanding membership; recruiting and managing volunteers for valet bike parking and other events; coordinating Bike to Work Month activities, volunteers, and event sponsors; promoting SCBC events and activities via print and digital media; and assisting with other miscellaneous tasks.
