NCES seeks event organizer

The North Columbia Environmental Society has decided to host a Bike Swap at the end of April as a fundraiser and is seeking a coordinator to oversee the event.

“We are hoping that this event will become an annual fundraiser for us to support our effort to become financially sustainable,” the group said in an e-mail this past weekend. “This position would be well supported by a planning committee and be offered an honorarium. Ideally we would have someone with past event planning/coordination experience.”

The person selected for this position  should have knowledge of:

  • Event planning;
  • Event promotion and marketing;
  • Volunteer recruitment and coordination;
  • Arranging all logistics;
  • Liaison with community partners; and
  • Executing and overseeing the event.

“We anticipate that this role would require approximately 40 hrs of work over a six-week period,” the e-mail said.

If you are interested in taking on this role or would like more information please contact Erin Wilkins at or 250-837-4548.
