ACSA’s online Career Center is the place to go to find out how to apply for the association’s new part-time Membership Recruiter positions.
The Member Services Department is increasing the number of membership staff directly serving the field from nine part-time individuals with specific regional boundaries, to 20 at-large, part-time employees. The restructuring is aimed at growing ACSA’s membership, following several recessional years of decline.
Although there will be more staffers, the costs to the association will remain the same because of reduced travel expenses, sponsorships and a greater reliance on technology. The job comes with a $1,000 base salary per month, plus bonus potential and complimentary ACSA membership. Member Recruitment Team members will work from home.
The 20-member team will be assigned to serve areas of greatest potential growth based on known data. Assignments will also be determined by geographical and demographical needs, such as job-alike, gender and diversity. The focus of the unit will also require a realignment to more heavily emphasize generating leads and growing membership.
The positions are expected to be open for applications July 16 through July 30. These new positions will have a strong reliance on technology. Applicants are expected to download the application form and submit it online. Details on the position can be accessed online in ACSA’s Career Center, and in an advertisement in EdCal’s JobBoard. Once the applications are in, the interviews will be conducted via Skype.
Each Membership Recruitment Team member will be responsible for recruiting a specific number of new and renewed members each month. They will be provided with newly available data on non-member administrators from which to recruit.
ACSA Assistant Executive Director Joseph Jones said this realignment is in response to the shifting trends and demographics of school administrators and potential members.
“We’re making a change in how we recruit our members,” Jones said. “In the past we’ve relied on our ACSA members to recruit for us, and this change does not detract from all the ongoing efforts in our charters and regions to bring in new members. It’s just that now we’re asking our member services team to take on part of that responsibility.”
ACSA currently has approximately 14,500 members, while there are 25,000 school leaders in California eligible for membership. There’s a lot of room for potential growth, which the new MRT will be expected to tap.
