Newsletter Staff Wanted

The Indiana Genealogical Society is seeking a volunteer to be an Editorial Assistant for its IGS Newsletter, which is published 6 times a year. The Editorial Assistant is in charge of proofreading each issue of the newsletter for spelling errors, formatting issues, etc. This is not a paid position, but expenses are reimbursed. The time commitment is 5-10 hours per issue. The ability to meet printing deadlines is a must--the Editorial Assistant must be able to quickly proofread each issue and send back any corrections to the Editor within 4-5 days of receiving it.

IGS is also looking for someone to take over as Editor for the IGS Newsletter. The Editor is responsible for putting together each issue, using the regular columns and items that are submitted, as well as compiling information from other relevant sources. This is not a paid position, but expenses (such as software, ink cartridges and postage) are reimbursed. The ability to meet printing deadlines is a must; familiarity with using Microsoft Publisher and creating PDF files with Adobe Acrobat is recommended. The time commitment is 15-20 hours per issue.

A sample issue is available at http://www.indgensoc.org/publications/IGSnewsletter.pdf

If you are interested, or would like more information, please contact newsletter@indgensoc.org
