Open Position at the Association for Social Economics: Executive Secretary

The Association for Social Economics seeks a new Executive Secretary who will be responsible for most of the day-to-day operations of the Association. The position requires excellent administrative skills and (because of financial tasks) residency in the United States. 

The responsibilities of this position include: 

Maintaining the Association membership list, managing member subscriptions to the Association’s journals, and responding to member inquiries. 

Preparing annual election ballots and communicating election outcomes. Keeping the content of the ASE website up-to-date. 

Tracking deposits and checks, sending checks and wire transfers, and maintaining records of all association transactions. 

Preparing agendas and minutes for annual meetings of the Association membership and twice-yearly meetings of its Executive Council, and maintaining a repository of the official documents of the Association. 

Coordinating with organizers to manage the finances and logistics of the ASE World Congress and Summer School, in years in which these are held. 

Providing support to the President in decision making. 

Serving on committees, including as the Chair of the Membership and Outreach Committee.

Compensation for the position is currently set at $5,500 per year (or a similar amount for a reduction in teaching) plus reimbursement for hotel, registration and travel expenses to attend the annual Allied Social Science Association conference. 

Interested individuals should send a letter expressing interest, a CV, and the names of two references to the ASE President and search committee chair, Julie Nelson ([log in to unmask]). Review of applications will begin April 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
