Volunteer Position Announcement
Listserv Specialist
Archaeological Legacy Institute
Title: Listserv Specialist
Background: Archaeological Legacy Institute is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization based in Eugene, Oregon.  Our streaming-media Web site and chief project, The Archaeology Channel (; TAC), launched 13 years ago, has become one of the world’s most popular Web sites relating to archaeology and the human cultural heritage, with annual traffic in the millions of page views.  We recently relaunched TAC as an even more attractive, content-filled, dynamic, and interactive platform for our programming, services and information.  A closely-related spinoff of TAC is The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival, produced each spring at the Shedd Institute, in downtown Eugene, Oregon.  In 2010, ALI launched its first cable TV programming distributed over a growing nationwide network of stations.  Our most popular program is the Audio News from Archaeologica, our weekly radio-style show summarizing the top archaeology and cultural heritage research stories from around the world and distributed on TAC and by podcast to a loyal audience in the hundreds of thousands.  ALI has numerous opportunities for unlimited growth as an Internet media and public outreach organization and needs to expand its volunteer work force in order to take advantage of these opportunities.  Some of our volunteers may become our employees, depending upon their productivity and effectiveness.
Hourly Commitment: Approximately 2-5 hours per week.
Job Purpose: To improve our ability to communicate with target audiences.  We frequently share information and make announcements via listservs, so we need someone toassist with this activity.
Description: Our listserv specialists deliver our announcements and information via multiple listservs to selected groups of recipients.
Here is your chance to get involved with the creative heart of a dynamic and growing enterprise.  Your help here will have a direct impact on ALI's productivity and ability to pursue its public mission.  The experience you gain will be directly transferable to other positions you may seek in the future.
Key Responsibilities: The Listserv Specialist will team with our existing listserv crew to deliver messages via listservs; expand our index of listserve Web sites on archaeology, education, and related subjects; serve as conduit for ALI information to listservs; and monitor listservs for information useful to ALI.
Requirements:  This job requires people with computer and communication skills as well as familiarity and experience with the World Wide Web.  Ideal attributes include familiarity with listservs and a background in archaeology and anthropology.  We expect some measure of on-the-job learning and training, but we want to find people who can take us to the next level of competence and productivity as we move still more actively into the world of public outreach.
To Apply: Contact Dr. Richard Pettigrew by telephone (541-345-5538) or e-mail (  A resume is required.
