From time to time, we have been asked to let our members know of available paid positions.  Because the News Bulletin appears only quarterly, and employers usually need prompt action, we have been unable to help in the past.  The speed and simplicity of the Internet now permits a change in this practice.  We post all such opportunities on this page, and remove them promptly when we are notified that the position is no longer open or a year after the original posting. 

There is NO FEE for employers or applicants.
Job listings should be limited to about 15 lines so they can be completely displayed on a netbook or tablet screen.


Requests for volunteer help can be posted on our volunteer page.  

PLEASE NOTE:  We have not investigated any of the listings shown.
