PAMLA Seeking Communications Assistant

We are seeking one or two grad student volunteers to help us with managing the PAMLA website and e-communications.  This might be a good opportunity for someone interested in digital media, or considering alternative careers in administration or non-profit work.  To start with duties would be simple, like adding people to listservs, posting announcements on the website and social media, and updating the conference website.  As interest and time allows, there might be opportunity for more advanced design and development tasks.
