Short Term Contract – 18 months
Date of Job: Jan 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020
Location: Minnesota Annual Conference Offices, Minneapolis, MN
Compensation: $48,000 - $54,000
The Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church is looking for an experienced volunteer coordinator for the United Methodist General Conference gathering in May 2020 at the Twin Cities Convention Center. General Conference of the United Methodist Church is a quadrennial gathering of over 3,000 United Methodists from around the world. Each General Conference is where pre-determined United Methodist delegates wrestle with today’s issues and vote on the United Methodist Church’s official denominational policies. In 2020, Minneapolis, MN was chosen to host General Conference and is responsible for gathering and training volunteers for this event.
The volunteer coordinator will be responsible for recruiting, training, and implementation volunteer management strategies and best practices in order to make each General Conference attendee feel as though Minnesota is their home away from home. In order to create that experience, the volunteers will be with the attendees every step of the way from landing at MSP airport, transportation services, special services, and while they are at the Twin Cities Convention Center during General Conference. The Minneapolis Host Team is creating a culture that is “kinder than necessary” and expects the volunteer coordinator to extend that culture to the volunteer and the system that he/she creates.
This position is a short term, 18-month, compensation contracted position with a travel expense budget.
