Contract Administrator for the Naramata Bench Wineries Association (Part-Time)

The Naramata Bench Wineries Association (NBWA) is a membership organization, seeking a part-time administrator to coordinate the volunteer board of directors and to oversee the implementation of the organization's five-year strategic plan (2022-2027).

3.     Financial administration: collect membership fees, facilitate payments to projects and contractors, keep books in Quickbooks, provide monthly financial reports to the board of directors, prepare annual budgets in coordination with the board and partners, and write annual membership/public reports.

4.     Community coordination: organize an annual general meeting as a membership reporting and community engagement event, send a monthly newsletter to the association membership with regional branding, learning and marketing opportunities, and news from partner organizations.
