Friends of Lime Kiln Society (FOLKS) Interim Director Services Contract

Overview –
The Executive Director (ED) of FOLKS will be on leave from April 1 to September 30, 2020 while working for Washington State Parks at Lime Kiln Point. As a state employee the ED is not permitted to perform certain aspects in support of FOLKS that are outside the park role. Contract services are sought to perform the following tasks as Interim Director (ID) during this period.

Services Contract Scope:

Volunteer Program Management – (35% of effort)
While the bulk of volunteer recruitment and training will be complete by April 1st, the ID will continue any recruitment and training tasks and assume on-going responsibility for volunteer scheduling (Interpretive Center operations, lighthouse and park tours, virtual reality viewing, special events, etc).

Interpretive Center (IC) Operations – (30%)
Merchandise purchasing for the season will be substantially complete, but the ID will monitor sales patterns and stocking levels to replenish merchandise through the season. They will manage merchandise display and general upkeep of the facility for consumer appeal. They will supervise Point of Sale (POS) operations, manage cash for the POS, and follow procedures for cash management.

Special Events Coordination – (30%)
The ID will provide coordination services for the Orca Sing and Super Pod 7 events and on-site coordination and support for contracted lighthouse weddings.

They will also help coordinate our Annual Volunteer Appreciation BBQ at the end of the season, with support from the FOLKS Board of Directors and WSP.

FOLKS Operations – (5%)
The ID will represent FOLKS operations at approximately 4 Board of Director’s meetings during the contract period, including State Parks leadership, as required. They will provide assistance to Board members in FOLKS promotion and marketing activities through the website, Facebook and other media sources.

Estimated Effort:
It is estimated that these tasks may require an average of 10-20 hours per week of effort, with more effort in the first half of the contract period than the second half.

Contract Compensation:
The ID contractor will receive supportive training from ED and will be paid $1000 per month during the term of the contract, totaling $6,000. Bonus compensation may be accrued given additional fundraising efforts and donations.
