Membership and Marketing Division

Reports to:
The WCNY Magazine feature writer will report to the Magazine editor.

The Division:
The Membership and Marketing Division is responsible for membership, membership benefits and for developing, coordinating and maintaining all communications with members including committees responsible for sponsorship, membership, Club website, social media and general communications. This Division manages the Club’s Magazine, the membership directory through the school, the website and social media outlets, the Club’s dues structure and membership benefits. It is also responsible for ensuring a cohesive message for all member communication vehicles. This division is responsible for creating communications and services for the membership that will ensure a high level of member retention and for bringing new members into the club. Since continuing to attract new members is vital for the survival and prosperity of the alumni network, it is perhaps the most important function of the chapter.

Support the Marketing and Communications Division by crafting creative, compelling articles that capture the attention of our alumni, who receive our bi-annual magazine. In concert with the magazine's editor and managing editor, you will compose articles tied to the varied events and experiences related to the Club, that appeal to a multi-generational audience of highly intelligent successful alumni. Article subjects include Club events and affinity groups, profiles of Club volunteers and interviews with Joseph Wharton Dinner award recipients. This is a great opportunity not only to bulk up your writing portfolio, but to have your work seen by a well-connected audience with whom you share a meaningful affiliation.

Time Commitment:
Time will vary throughout the year, but it will be approximately 2-4 hours per article on average for each issue of the newsletter.

All volunteers must be supporting (dues paying) members of the Wharton Club of New York. The type of person would be most suited for the position: an organized business/marketing professional who is adept at using Social Media platforms for business-related communications and is looking for a challenging volunteer position that will benefit the entire membership of the Club. We are looking for people who have the time to give to the Club.

Application Process:
Interested volunteers should complete the volunteer application and submit a resume to Gabriela Sanchez, the Club’s Administrator at gsanchez@whartonny.com a resume clearly indicating which volunteer position is of interest and explaining your enlightened self-interest in serving the Club. Once the submission is received, the applicant will be contacted by one of the Club’s volunteers. The Club expects that each selected volunteer will treat this volunteer "job" as seriously as a professional job and recognize that it is an extension of his or her professional world.
