Aquascaping Contest Coordinator Needed
The Aquatic Gardeners Association International Aquascaping Contest
needs a leader! In order to continue the oldest international contest in
the plant-keeping world, the AGA needs a Contest Committee Chair to
coordinate the 2007 Aquascaping Contest.
Duties include implementing online and/or print advertising, recruiting
judges, requesting sponsorship for prizes, handling participant and
member problems and feedback, and coordinating prize-giving. Erik Olson
will run the Contest web site and provide technical support, so computer
skills are not required beyond timely communication via e-mail and forum.
The Contest Committee Chair should have working knowledge of the
Contest, although previous participation is not required. This person
should be detail-oriented and able to recruit and supervise other
volunteers for tasks such as creating graphics and posting in forums.
He or she must be routinely available via e-mail and forum, and reports
to the AGA Management Committee.
The work requires approximately 15 minutes each day, and a few more
hours per week in the summer, to have time to coordinate advance
advertising and acquire donations. The Contest opens June 1, 2007 and
closes September 16, 2007. Commitment is for one time only unless explicitly
renewed by the Chair and the BOD.

have any questions, please feel free to post them here so all can learn.
