About the Role
Indian Center Inc. has an opening for a community member that enjoys working in a respectful manner with elders, community activists, and Native tribes as an event coordinator. No previous experience is required, but a passion to help the Native community is highly desired. This is a part-time position (10-20 hours/week) with a starting wage of $12/hour. This position will require both on sight community interaction and remote responsibilities.
1. The employee will be responsible for meeting with community members to schedule events at the Indian Center. Once the initial meeting has occurred the individual will collect the deposit and appropriate rental fee in accordance with the rental agreement. which will need to be signed by the event leader. The fee and deposit must be collected no later than the day of the event, and prior to that date would be preferred. Dates can only be reserved after a deposit has been made. Once the deposit is made the employee will enter the event leader’s name and number on the Indian Center calendar. A rental key will then be provided to the event leader only, and will need to be returned immediately after the event has concluded. If the rental key is not returned for any reason, the employee will immediately notify a Board Member and the deposit will not be returned to the event leader.
*In accordance with the rental agreement; wakes, funerals, and memorials take precedence over any other event. Rescheduling will be required for events that occur when these ceremonies have to take place. Ceremonial events are exempt from rental fees but still require the appropriate deposit.
2. Once an event has concluded, the event coordinator will be expected to conduct a detailed review of all spaces used by the event group at the Center. Clear expectations for cleaning, trash removal, floors and furniture have been laid out in the rental agreement and other materials provided. If The Center is not returned to the expected condition then the employee will need to inform the event leader that the deposit will not be returned until the Center is properly maintained. If that fails to occur prior to the next event the deposit will be forfeited.
3. Deposits for events will need to be made in cash or check. These will be held at The Center until the event has concluded and will be returned to the event leader once inspection has taken place, expectations have been met, and rental key returned. Rental fees must be paid separately and will need to be given to the employee’s supervisor once payment has been made.
