After almost five years of exemplary service, @Melisande Arneil has decided to step down as Director of Events and Conferences. Meli, I sincerely appreciate you and the work you have done within this department. You're a rockstar. :hug

With this decision, we find ourselves in need of a new Director.

Overview

The Director of Events and Conferences is an Executive level position in the Department of Events and Conferences at TarValon.Net with overall responsibility for planning our official events and ensuring that the planning of unofficial events in our Local Events forum follows TarValon.Net's rules. In this position you will work closely with the Amyrlin, Shatayan, and Keeper, as well as the other Directors, particularly Membership, Marketing, Outreach, and Online Events.

Duties and Responsibilities
  • Provide information and advice to the Amyrlin, Shatayan, and Keeper
  • Supervise the Master/Mistress of Revels and local liaisons for each event to make sure they are planned and executed well
  • Solicit event bids in a timely manner
  • Make sure our events operate within budget and still provide a good value to our members
  • Moderate all Events forums, including Local Events, and make sure our rules are followed
  • Supervise the Costume/Cosplay team, making sure the Lead Costumer and their team has whatever support they require to function effectively
  • Manage all other needs of the Department as they arise
Requirements
  • Be a Senior Member (SM) in good standing, preferably for at least 1 year. We will also consider applicants who have previously been SM in good standing with at least 1 year of time at the SM rank.
  • Be a self-starter.
  • Be willing and able to spend ~15 hours a week handling Department issues. This is an estimate. Some weeks are less, some are more, depending on what's happening. This is also a critical requirement, as events planning often has strict deadlines and quick responses can mean the difference in cost and availability for venues.
  • Regularly attend at least one official event yearly (past attendance at TarValon.Net events is helpful).
  • Experience planning events (although these do not necessarily have to be TarValon.Net events).
  • Be extremely organized and creative.
  • Be able to employ tact and diplomacy, even with people you don't necessarily like or respect.
  • Able to comfortably and professionally interact with people around the world.
  • Able to comfortably and professionally represent our organization to outside groups and vendors, such as hotels.
If you are interested in applying for this position, please email keeper@tarvalon.net, cordamora@tarvalon.net, and amyrlin@tarvalon.net with the subject line "APPLICATION - DIRECTOR OF EVENTS AND CONFERENCES - YOUR NAME HERE" no later than April 8, 2022. Please include how you fit the requirements listed above and any thoughts or ideas you have about the Department in general and for future events. You may include a resume if you think that would be helpful to us, but it is not required. Good luck!
