Wanted: Meeting Facilitator

The Minnesota River Watershed Alliance is seeking someone to facilitate ten quarterly meetings between January, 2007 and June, 2009. Each quarterly meeting will normally take place on the third Tuesday or Thursday of the month and run approximately 2 to 3 hours between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 10 p.m. depending on location, agenda and if there is a scheduled event. The location of the meetings will vary between Hutchinson and a number of cites in the Minnesota River Watershed. A cap of $500 per meeting has been set to include time and expenses. Time commitment includes limited prep, service at the meetings, and limited follow up.
