Are you someone who has a strong desire to offer great educational programs for adults? Do you take great pride in your work? Do you have high standards and an understanding of learning objectives and how to achieve them? Are you a strong writer and communicator? This position could be just what you are looking for.
The Texas Self Storage Association is hiring for a director position with the title "Director of Education & Communications" to join our wonderful, hard-working team of seven employees. (We have the best members in the world.) The main focus of this position is planning and creating educational curriculum (and coordinating speakers) for TSSA's member education, including online webinars, podcasts, in-person events and our annual conference. A secondary focus is on creating the strategy and overseeing execution of communications to members via the website, e-newsletter, mass emails and coordinating with and contributing content to a contractor who manages the bi-monthly magazine. Supervises the Social Media and Marketing Coordinator, but that could soon become a lateral relationship or require very minimal supervision. Mostly, the focus on marketing is high level and ensuring that we achieve our objectives on an ongoing basis.
Will also work with association volunteers to create content relevant to our members, who own and manage self-storage facilities across the state. We have approximately 3,000 members who own more than 4,000 facilities across Texas. (Did I mention we have the best members in the world?)
We are currently working remotely but plan to return, at least part of each week, to working in our office, located in Round Rock, probably this summer. Eventually we may decide to go 100% remote but we own the business condos in which we office and plan to use them once it is safe to co-work in the same space.
TSSA offers excellent benefits, including 100% paid health and dental insurance, 401(K) with very generous match, and competitive vacation/leave.
Candidates without resumes will not be considered. Please do not apply for this position unless you have a sincere interest in and qualify for a full-time director position for a not-for-profit trade association in Texas.
Requires excellent communication skills, including demonstrable written and spoken word, the ability to write and edit content and the ability to confidently present via recorded video and live stream.
Superior organizational skills are required to coordinate multiple educational events in a given month.
Must adapt well to new technology and be tech savvy.
Prefer a background in education or communications.
Telecommuting is allowed.
Additional Salary Information: Compensation commensurate with experience and is somewhat negotiable. Potential for greater earnings is definitely there for a motivated individual.
