Aspen Public Radio is looking for a dynamic person to sustain and grow our membership. The membership director is expected to develop and implement strategies to achieve that. Knowledge of Donor Perfect or similar donor database is essential. The membership director maintains the station records and coordinates all station correspondence.

This is a great opportunity to grow with an award winning station that serves Aspen to Glenwood Springs and Rifle to Eagle.
