Midwest ELGL Project Assistant!

Midwest ELGL is Looking for a Project Assistant


ELGL has evolved from an informal organization of 16 “members” in September 2010 to a non-profit of more than 450 dues paying individual members and 15 organization members with four chapters (Central Oregon, Portland Metro, Willamette Valley, and Midwest). Our members hold a wide variety of positions from intern to city manager to attorney and represent the public and private sectors. We recognize that the path to local government leadership can begin in a variety of disciplines and membership is not limited to only those who currently work in management.

As the Midwest chapter expands, they need help!  This is a great opportunity for a graduate student or professional new to the field to get some local government experience.  Some specific duties for the Midwest ELGL Project Assistant are:

  • Communicate the mission of Midwest ELGL with graduate schools, professional associations, and practitioners.
  • Work with the ELGL Conference Planning Team in planning #ELGL14.
  • Develop original content for the ELGL website through interviews with current and retired city managers, media members, and other leaders in the local government arena.
  • Manage Midwest ELGL Twitter feed.
