Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology

Crosshatch Center for Art and Ecology Program Specialist Job Opening

Deadline for first consideration is February 23, 2024; position will remain open until filled.

Starting salary exactly $50,150.

The heart of this position is events coordination, but with a pretty big bucket for what we mean by “events.” At our best, Crosshatch is out in the community offering programs of all kinds. Our work takes place around the 10-county area of Northwest Lower Michigan, and sometimes beyond. We work with a wide range of partners, some with strong personalities or very specific desires for what they want out of a partnership. Importantly, these events are often the first experience people have with our organization, and so they need to go well beyond meeting basic expectations to become a vehicle for communicating the value and delight of Crosshatch.

You, then, are both a stellar people-person and a rock-solid logistical expert, wrangling registration, site-prep, sponsors, presenters, partners, guests and unforeseen wrinkles with aplomb. Whether a three-hour presentation to 30 at the Alluvion, a three-day conference for 300, held on a half-dozen area farms (all at once), or a three-week pop-up artist residency program, you can confidently take the reins, ask for what you need, move forward with grace even when things go wrong, and constantly develop and revise new processes for capturing data, evaluating programs and reporting out to our supporters. Read that again, and if you are nodding along, keep going.

Like most of the positions at our small non-profit, this role encompasses both the planner and the doer: higher-level thinking around systems, strategies, and tactics, plus the need for hands-on implementation of plans and programs. In particular, the person well-suited to this position will hold both big picture and detail well, and will both check off tasks each day as well as make time for reflection on how to solve problems at the systems level.

Plan, execute and evaluate high-quality events and workshops.
Work with advisory committees, partners and guest presenters to create relevant and impactful programming.
Ensure a safe, comfortable, supportive, accessible, and inclusive experience for event attendees, including logistics for catering, wayfinding, bathrooms, and parking.
Work with speakers to make sure that their presentations are amazing and agreements are clear and complete.
Collaborate with team members to promote events to make sure they are well-attended.
Working with the team, make sure you are fulfilling all grant requirements, and providing our grant reporting staff with the data they need.
Working with the Co-director and Operations & Finance Specialist, create and follow budgets.
