    The board has received and accepted the resignation of Lireina ni Dormerus t`al Bearach from the position of Keeper/COO. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Lireina for her years of selfless dedication and service to the site. I don’t think any words will do justice to the amount of work and love you put into taking care of us. Thank you.

    This posting therefore is the beginning of the hiring process for the position of Keeper/COO of tarvalon.net.

    Description
    The Keeper, legally known as the Chief Operations Officer, handles the duties as outlined in the Bylaws for the Vice President. The COO is also responsible for running the administration and making sure that it is efficient, effective, and coherent.

    Requirements
    What matters:
    Must currently be a Senior Member in good standing.
    Must have been a Senior Member for at least two years.
    Must know how to use tactfulness, discretion, and diplomacy.
    Must have previously served in the administration in some capacity.
    Must be active within the community.
    Must pass a background check, as this position has fiscal responsibilities.

    What doesn't:
    Your gender.
    Your nationality.
    Your group affiliation.

    Duties and Responsibilities

    Officers are responsible for a broader, more nebulous set of things that don't lend themselves well to a bulleted list. The Keeper/COO is the front face of the administration within the administration and is responsible for making sure that the administration is focused towards enacting the vision of the organization as a whole. This position works with all Directors to make sure that the individual Departments are moving towards the goals of those Departments as well the community as a whole while working together to provide a cohesive experience for our members. The Keeper is the main point of contact between the Departments and the Officers.

    This position involves a lot of paperwork and administrative oversight. It's reading and responding to monthly reports, it's talking with Directors on a regular (sometimes daily) basis, it's answering phone calls and texts and emails in a timely fashion, it's regular meetings on Hangouts, it's accepting that there will be times when you will be spending more hours than you thought you had in a day working on emergencies, it's being willing to step in and perform any position's duties temporarily.

    The Keeper serves as the Amyrlin’s right hand. Sometimes the Keeper must step in and be the go-to person of the community instead of the Amyrlin. As Keeper, you will have access to privileged information, most of which you won’t be able to share; therefore, discretion is key, and the ability to discern what can be shared is essential.

    This position requires a constant, active presence. Expect to spend 15-20 hours a week actively engaged in Keeper duties, though some weeks it will be less and some weeks it will be more. Travel may occasionally be required, though that happens rarely.

    How to Apply

    To be considered, send an email with the subject line "APPLICATION - KEEPER OF THE CHRONICLES - YOURNAMEHERE" to board@tarvalon.net, amyrlin@tarvalon.net, and keeper@tarvalon.net . If you have any questions about the position please feel free to email Rhed at amyrlin@tarvalon.net or Lireina at keeper@tarvalon.net.

    Applications will be taken until October 21, 2019.

    APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU!

    Liz you have been amazing. This is an exhausting and (I'm sure at times) thankless job, and you've done it diligently and well for a long time. Thank you for everything! :hug

    Good luck to the applicants. You're going to need it! :D
