Wanted: Community Partnership Coordinator for NYMS

We’re actively recruiting for the role of Community Partnership Coordinator.

The focus of the position is to create and nourish relationships with communities and other organizations.

Just like fungi don’t exist in a vacuum, the New York Mycological Society wants to be part of a mycelium with other organizations that are focused on nature, conservation, community and education. We want our club to reflect the beautiful diversity of New York City and introduce ourselves to more New Yorkers, especially to communities that are currently under-represented in our membership.

This role was created two years ago and has been held by Sneha Ganguly, who did a fantastic job building and nourishing relationships with other organizations and organizing a series of very popular outreach and partnership events.

Sneha will be supporting the club in a different role this year (exciting news to come) and we are now looking for a new person to step into this position.

This is the perfect opportunity for a self-starting community organizer who is passionate about promoting fungal and cultural diversity and taking on a role of great responsibility within the club.

This role is supported by a scholarship!

Applications are due by March 11, 2023.

​​We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we strongly encourage BIPOC, LGBTQ+ individuals, and differently-abled persons to apply.

We look forward to hearing from you!

President, NYMS
