We're Hiring a Membership and Operations Specialist!

Posted: 06/08/2023
By: Clinton Begley

Our membership is growing and so is our team! If you or someone you know would love to work with American Whitewater and help serve our members and our mission, please encourage them to apply today.

The Membership & Operations Specialist is a new position that will primarily work with our Membership and Engagement Director Bethany Overfield and help support the necessary programmatic, administrative, and data management tasks associated with maintaining and growing the organization’s member and donor base. Additional responsibilities will include administrative program support for regional stewardship staff, and partnering with the Finance Director and Executive Director on special projects to support nonprofit stewardship and best practices. Although this is generally not an outward facing position, there will also be seasonal opportunities to provide live-event support both remotely and on-site.

We are a small organization with staff living across the country in the communities where we work. We take a collaborative team-driven approach to projects but our staff are expected to be self motivated with an ability to work independently and think critically, while also being a good teammate. You don't need to be an expert paddler, or a paddler at all, to work at our organization but we all have a passion for rivers and their responsible enjoyment.

Please see the full position description for details of essential job functions and activities. 

To apply: Please submit a resume and cover letter to with the subject heading “Membership & Operations Specialist Application.” We will not accept applications for this position after June 30th and will begin an initial round of  interviews beginning in mid June for early applicants.
