The International Bluegrass Music Association is looking to fill a new, part-time position at their Nashville headquarters.
Here is the official notification:
The International Bluegrass Music Association is accepting resumes through August 25, 2014 for a Member Services Specialist: a “customer service,” contract staff position. Our new IBMA Member Services Specialist will work 20 hours/week, in the Nashville, Tennessee office.
The successful candidate will have a deep knowledge of bluegrass music, the bluegrass music industry, and the bluegrass community. We’re looking for someone with a very positive, friendly personality dedicated to the concept of serving IBMA members and helping them get as much value as possible out of their association with the organization they are a part of. Our new Member Services Specialist will be a “people” person with good Microsoft Excel and Access database skills who has a great telephone voice and is skilled at time management.
IBMA is committed to serving our members well, in a timely way. If you are a current member, you will be hearing from our new Member Services Specialist on a regular basis by telephone or email, to check in and see how your bluegrass career and project plans are going, how IBMA can help promote what you’re doing, and how we can connect you with other individuals in the community to help you achieve your goals. The Member Services Specialist will also be the point person on the IBMA staff for member requests-which will be addressed immediately or fielded to the appropriate staff person.
Please send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org. We plan to fill the position in September 2014.
Just in time for World of Bluegrass. Talk about hitting the ground running!
This sounds like a great move by the IBMA, who have developed an undeserved reputation for only caring about and helping the big stars, the top festivals, and the largest record labels. It’s a new day and a new way at the IBMA.
