The Business History Conference announces its search for a new Web Editor to oversee its online presence as an organization.
The new editor will succeed the current editor, Shane Hamilton, who will be permanently stepping down as of March 2020. The new editor's term would officially start in December 2019 (running for four months concurrent with the current editor), runs for three years, and is renewable. The BHC is in a position to budget modest funds to support this position, preferably in conjunction with matching support from an institution. The new editor can reside in any country.
The responsibilities of the Web Editor include the following:
- Posting annual meeting materials. This involves proactively contacting stakeholders for relevant information for the meeting program, and uploading information for attendees in advance of the meeting. These duties, running from approximately December to March, constitute the busiest time of year for the Web Editor and the most concentrated work.
- Updating the "Governance" sections as required (annual changes in Trustees, committees, etc.); updates to bylaws.
- Maintaining and updating the Prizes and Awards pages (new prizes, each year's winners, etc.), as well as other news items and announcements for members.
- Maintaining BEH On-Line in collaboration with the BEH On-Line Editor.
Applications for the BHC Web Editor position should be submitted via email by December 15, 2019 to Susie Pak, Chair, BHC Electronic Media Oversight Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a C.V. or résumé, and a cover letter explaining your qualifications and interest in the position.
