The Boston Preservation Alliance is the city’s leading historic preservation advocacy
organization. We are continuing along a trajectory of growing support through social
media outreach, a fall annual awards event, and educational programs. We work with a
diversity of partners and constituents interested in balancing preservation of the city’s
historic character with the city’s growth, evolution and vibrancy. Our supporters include
individuals, organizations, other non-profits, and corporations across the spectrum of the
real estate and design communities.
The Alliance seeks an enthusiastic, well-organized, and motivated individual to manage
the external outreach of the organization through electronic communications (social
media, web site, direct emails), mail, traditional press (newspapers, etc.), and Alliance
programs and events. The role also includes managing membership and sponsorship
through our electronic database.
We require excellent writing and interpersonal skills, the ability to multi-task in a fast-
paced environment as part of a small but dedicated staff, and the flexibility to manage
periodic evening and early-morning meetings and events in this exempt, salaried position.
While an interest in our core mission to “protect places, promote vibrancy, and preserve
character” is helpful, this position does not require historic preservation training or
experience. A passion for the uniqueness of a city like Boston and a desire to share that
enthusiasm is beneficial. A candidate with experience, ideas and enthusiasm to enhance
the diverse, day-to- day operation of a small non-profit will thrive.
Some experience desired in non-profit administration, communications, social
media/website management, and prospect/membership-database management.
QuickBooks, program and event logistics, promotion, and marketing would also be of
benefit. Excellent writing, editing, and communication skills are essential.
We require an undergraduate degree and prefer at least two years professional or high-
level internship experience in an office setting.
Each member of our small staff reports to the Executive Director and works closely with
him, the board of Directors and committees to assure the successful operation of the
Alliance. This job provides many opportunities for an enthusiastic and creative thinker
who successfully balances day-to- day tasks with new ideas and an eagerness to help grow
the organization’s base of support.

firstname.lastname@example.org . We seek to fill this position as soon as possible.
Please, no phone calls.
