MABA, the Malvern Area Betterment Association, is currently searching for a new Director of Operations to oversee the continued success of SW Iowa’s #1 haunted house, Gateway of Chaos. Part fundraiser, part youth engagement project and drawing volunteers and patrons alike from hours around, GOC has been teaching construction, acting, leadership and design skills to youth and adults alike for the past six years. If a director isn’t found by May, the haunted house will not operate this fall.
The work is focused 70/30 during the fall months (Aug-Oct) and the rest of the year. A non-profit event, focused on community engagement and youth development, the incumbent should have a strong history of leadership, working with youth and adults, event coordination, and business administration. Strong public speaking and facilitation skills are desirable. Any background in construction or set design would be highly beneficial.
This position is being offered on a volunteer, internship, or profit-sharing basis. This opportunity would be ideal for a working professional with a passion for community and haunted attractions and has evenings and weekends to dedicate to this role. An internship opportunity could also be structured for undergrad/graduate students studying theatre, business, construction or management.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to work with passionate individuals of all ages and give back to the community.
Please send a letter of interest highlighting your qualifications to Deb Breeding c/o MABA 501 Main St., Malvern IA 51551, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
