willing to dedicate a bit of time to support our
development activities, it would be greatly appreciated,
we hope you will apply (see below).
Some of the duties you
could assist us with would include:
* Blog on behalf of the
foundation - either directly writing or editing
* Working the social media
/ community websites - participate in groups /
forums on behalf of the foundation
book / product reviews
the following economic / entrepreneurial
development people in your state, including

this is IDEAL for an SBDC or economic development

We would ask the person
be willing to invest 8+ hours per month in volunteer
time and participate in a monthly conference call.
A great thing about this effort is that most activities
can take place outside of normal work hours, thus
making it easier to allocate the volunteer time.

participate as a state director for The FAMEE
Foundation. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
