The Society for Scholarly Publishing seeks a reliable, self-motivated, detail-oriented, and results-driven professional with an ability to solve problems; administer SSP’s customer support, database management, and membership retention/acquisition strategies; and oversee various administrative tasks.
The Membership Administrator works collaboratively with the SSP staff, board of directors, partners, and volunteers to administer customer support, database management, membership retention/acquisition strategies, and various administrative tasks. This position is the front-line of communication with members, prospective members, and program participants and is responsible for the accuracy and integrity of the society’s data. Responsibilities include processing memberships, event registrations, and product orders as well as developing strategies for member engagement, retention, and acquisition. SSP has just over 1000 members (individuals and organizations) and hosts approximately 24 events (in-person and virtual) annually.
SSP is a virtual organization with no brick-and-mortar headquarters, so this position will telecommute from anywhere in the U.S. and work virtually with other SSP staff and contractors. Applicants must be able to maintain a safe, separate workspace in which they can complete their work that is free from distraction and limits accessibility by non-employees, and live in an area where they can obtain reliable internet service. This is a full-time staff position including benefits and a stipend for internet and telephone services.
