ABOUT THE POSITION
The Convening and Events Manager supports PEAK’s work to deliver educational content related to equitable, effective, and efficient grantmaking practices and advocate for grantmakers to adopt the Principles for Peak Grantmaking.
The Convening and Events Manager will manage the development and delivery of program logistics for PEAK’s hosted conferences, programming, webinars, and sector appearances. This person will also provide logistical and strategic support, as needed, to the Chapter Manager for chapter events and webinars, and to the Membership Team to support the logistics for membership and sponsored webinars.
The Manager should be an excellent project and people manager with a solid background in event planning and management. Comfort in facilitating events in virtual environments and working across both internal and external stakeholders is a must. Highly polished written and verbal communication skills are required, as well as impeccable organizational skills and a strong customer service ethic in serving internal and external audiences. Ideally, the person would also be comfortable and competent in training small groups—such as speaker orientations—and able to travel 3–5 days per month for site selection and logistics planning, and for the annual conference. There will be periods during the year where additional travel may be required.
