Surfrider San Mateo County Chapter

Events Coordinator Needed


An Events Coordinator must be a Surfrider Foundation Member, be able to commit 1-5 hours a week of work on behalf of the chapter, remain in the position for a  2-year commitment, and attend a chapter meeting and or Executive Committee meeting at least every other month.

The Events Coordinator is a person who likes to have a lot of fun and throw tons of cool parties! Our Chapter is an entirely volunteer-based organization and without some serious merrymaking we’d have a much harder time sticking to our agendas.

Here’s what we need you to do:

  • Manage and organize Surfrider chapter events
  • Coordinate with committees and/or campaign and program leaders to identify event opportunities
  • Manage external event requests, and in collaboration with other leads determine Surfrider’s involvement
  • Identify and help manage event budgets
  • Delegate duties to respective volunteers according to their capabilities
  • Coordinate with all program leads involved in the execution of the event, as well as any outside partners and vendors
  • Check inventory before the event
  • Provide event details to the communications team to ensure that promotional materials are created and distributed well in advance of the event (e.g., social media, posters, newsletters, etc..)
  • Make sure all events are staffed with the appropriate volunteers
  • Manage event set up, tear down and follow-ups
  • Track event key performance areas and identify items to work on for future events

Skills that would be helpful:

  • Attention to detail & good communication skills
  • Creative and interested in furthering the work of our local Surfrider chapter
  • Nonprofit experience
  • Self-motivated and collaborative
  • Outgoing, proactive, and addicted to fun
  • Technical experience, especially with Google Suite & MS Office
