About Us:
We are a $1.5 million dollar association with six staffers located at 9951 Anderson Mill Rd in Austin. We offer a great work environment and generous benefits including a health insurance stipend and 401(k).
Our association is strong – and getting stronger. Over the last five years we have seen significant growth in our membership, annual budget, advocacy and annual conference. Now we want to see similar progress with our online presence and digital communications.
We've been around since 1944, but we have a startup mentality - everybody does a little bit of everything, and nobody is too good for anything. While this new position will be involved in the highest levels of strategic planning, it will also be responsible for basic, ground-level execution of the everyday tasks relating to all communications and social.

We are an equal opportunity employer.
