Possible Project Team activities include:

- giving help to others with their visibility projects.


All PT positions have a duration of 2 years. If anyone steps down in that time, a new election will be held and the replacement will have a new term of 2 years.


The office that we are presently in need of is: AVEN Media Coordinator.


Responsibilities: The AVEN Media Coordinator's primary responsibility is to coordinate with journalists and AVEN's media teams. This involves managing the various media teams, helping to recruit new members when necessary, and maintain relationships with the heads of media teams for various countries and languages. Media requests are recieved by email and posted on the forums, and it is AVEN Media Coordinator's responsibility to make sure that these are promptly forwarded to the appropriate people.

Other responsibilities include answering questions journalists have about the site, and to develop AVEN's media policy as and when needed.
The The AVEN Media Coordinator must be good at promptly handling media requests as they come in. They must be good at speaking with journalists, and they must be good at group coordination.
