AMCC Bids Farewell to Hannah Heimbuch & Jen Leahy; Hiring Two New Positions
AMCC is seeking two talented individuals to complement our current team: a Fishing Community Organizer and a Communications and Development Manager. Deadline to apply for both positions is Monday, September 18th; but apply early as the positions are open until filled.
AMCC bid farewell to Homer-based Community Fisheries Organizer, Hannah Heimbuch this summer. Hannah joined AMCC in the fall of 2014 and played an integral role in growing the Alaska Young Fishermen’s Network, serving as a voice for fishing communities in Washington D. C., and engaging coastal residents on a wide range of issues from ocean acidification to fishing opportunities and bycatch reduction. We will miss Hannah’s creativity, character, and unrelenting wit, but we are thrilled to know that she will be able to spend more time on the water doing what she loves. Hannah will be focusing more of my energy on her fishing business and creative opportunities while continuing to support the Alaska Young Fishermen’s Network as a steering committee member and volunteer.
In September, AMCC will also say goodbye to Communications and Engagement Manager, Jen Leahy. Jen has been with AMCC since early 2016 and has helped enhance social media engagement, improve our outreach materials, ramp up marketing for Catch of the Season, and increase our presence in Seward. The organization is restructuring this position back into a role based in Anchorage and responsible for both communications and fundraising functions from our main office. We thank Jen for her dedication to AMCC and her work during her time with us.
Are you detail-oriented, a lover of numbers, fisheries, and the ocean? Do you want to go to work with a great team of passionate folks, be connected to coastal Alaska and work for an award-wining, innovative nonprofit? Then our Finance and Operations Manager position might be right for you!
This multi-faceted position based in Anchorage supports important financial, operations, and administrative functions of our unique non-profit as well as our local seafood sales programs. AMCC can be flexible in how we fill the position. It could be full-time, ¾ time, or a contract position focused more on financial management for the right candidate that needs a more flexible schedule. Desired start date is late November to early December 2016. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible but no later than Friday, November 11th. Salary range is $45,000-$55,000 at the annual full-time rate and dependent on experience. This position will remain open until filled. Click here for a full description.
