We’re looking for a new editor for the NFA Fly Paper. After many years with Dana Bottcher at the helm, he is no longer its editor par excellence. Members for longer than 12 months have seen the magazine quality newsletter that Dana has produced; it showed off the club with great pride and distinction.
The new editor should expect to have free reign to build their own legacy. Our club by-laws stipulate a monthly newsletter be available to members, and in addition to club news, the Fly Paper forms an important historical record of club activities.
There is no expectation that anyone will take this job for as many years as Dana did. Volunteering is not accepting the job for more than what you want to offer, but there is hope for some continuity and active engagement in the club’s activities.
What will help the new editor succeed will be enthusiasm, involvement, good communication and collaboration and a willingness to work with monthly deadlines. To make the job as simple as possible, it will make sense to be familiar with word processing software. A willingness to learn the basics of the NFA website software (Wild Apricot) would also be helpful but not essential. Brett Schormann, our website manager, is available to help with that part of the job and the newsletter’s integration with the club’s site.You will get plenty of support from the Steering Committee and Brett Schormann. The position is open and we’d like the new editor to start with a January 2017 issue.
