New Position Announcement 
FGC Development Manager
Apply by September 23, 2002
Friends General Conference
Philadelphia, PA

(from an 8/9/02 message from Bruce Birchard, General  Secretary)

| Dear Friends,
|      We are searching for candidates for the new position of FGC 
| Development Manager.  This new position will involve major
| responsibilities for preparing and managing mail appeals and 
| foundation proposals, for managing and using our DonorPerfect 
| database, and for our growing communications and interpretation 
| program.  The Development Manager will be supervised by Michael 
| Wajda, who, in his capacity as Associate Secretary for 
| Development and Interpretation, will be focusing on major donors 
| and building our deferred giving program.  Michael will
| also be traveling a lot, while the Development Manager will 
| spend most of her/his time in the FGC office.  Rounding out our 
| Development "team" are two experienced support staff.
|     I have initiated this search before being absolutely certain 
| that we can fill the position.  Approval for this expansion of our
| Development program will be sought from our Central Committee when it
| meets at the beginning of November.  The proposal has already 
| received strong support from our Executive Committee, Finance and 
| Development Committees.  We will do preliminary interviews in
| October, so any interested candidate should submit a resume and a 
| letter of application by September 30 at the latest.  I expect to 
| have narrowed the field to a few final candidates by the time 
| Central Committee meets.  Then we will move quickly to complete the 
| process if, as I hope, the Central Committee approves the expansion.
|      We have prepared a brief announcement that could be used to
| advertise the position.  Please use it in any way you can to spread
| the word:
| Friends General Conference seeks a deeply committed Friend to serve 
| as Development Manager in its Philadelphia office.  Duties include
| management of FGC Annual Fund, grant writing, DonorPerfect database, 
| and communications program.  Development experience, writing, and 
| database skills essential.  Works with Associate Secretary for 
| Development and Interpretation  and support staff.  Full-time, full 
| benefits.  Send resume and letter to General Secretary, FGC, 
| 1216 Arch Street, 2B, Philadelphia, PA, 19107, or 
| bruceb at fgcquaker.org  by September 23, 2002.
|     Thanks very much for any assistance you can give us in 
| identifying candidates for this important position.
