Last week we said a sad goodbye to PNWD Registrar Janis Anable. During her nearly five years with us, Janis helped usher in online event registrations and payments, and also worked with a consultant to create a database that is the envy of other organizations. We will miss her immensely and wish her all the best.

Recently Janis managed registration for the 700 attendees to our Pacific Western Regional (PWR) Assembly, which gave our fellow PWR districts an opportunity to see the PNWD registration program in action. As a result of this, and as part of our ongoing regional collaboration, we are restructuring the Events Registrar position to serve both the Pacific Northwest District (PNWD) and the Mountain Desert District (MDD). This position is now open, and we are actively seeking applicants.

It is not necessary that the Events Registrar work directly from a district office, so applications are being accepted from both PNWD and MDD residents. The position will continue to be part-time.

The full job description can be found here. Interested applicants may send a cover letter and resume to pnwd@uua.org through June 21, 2013.

The position is also posted on the PNWD Job Openings page. When you have a job opening in your congregation that you would like us to post on the District’s job page, send the information to the district office. Include your congregation name, the position title, brief description, and contact person with phone number and email address. We encourage you to post the full position description on your website. Send us the URL to the detailed job description on your website, and we will link to it in the News posting.

Positions that serve more than one district in the Pacific Western Region may also be posted to the Pacific Western Region jobs page. Simply submit the information, as described above, to the district office with the request that it be announced on the PWR jobs page.
