RVC Events Specialist/Marketing Coordinator

Wherever there is a chance for investors and entrepreneurs to collide – there is an opportunity for an event.  We produce over 140 events annually.  These range from 2-hour Masterminds to eight day accelerators and everything in between.  Your skill for planning, coordinating, managing and shepherding all with what seems like an “easy button,” is what we’re looking for.  Oh, and we’re a non-profit association so your ability to produce a luscious happy hour spread on a budget is one of your Superpowers.  You might also have some hidden talents in the community and social marketing space.  While we have great exposure, we haven’t reached everyone we want to – yet.

Your Mission: To help Rockies Venture Club become THE recognized authority on Angel Investing in the Rocky Mountain Region

Some of the stuff that needs to be done:

  • Arranging meeting space for events of 12 – 500 regularly including logistics, catering, A/V, signage, banners, and nametags
  • Helping coordinate speakers, panelists and moderators – and making them all feel like a VIP
  • Planning, purchasing, arranging and hosting our happy hour and other meal related events with help from our amazing volunteers
  • Promoting our events on community pages, social media and anywhere else we’ll be noticed
  • Stepping in for a missing speaker or master of ceremonies when needed

What will it take to knock this out of the park?

  • A degree in business, finance, economics or something closely linked – like Philosophy.
  • Professional experience as an event coordinator or meeting planner in the non-profit or hospitality industry
  • A crazy passion for supporting economic development in Colorado by connecting investors and entrepreneurs
  • You’re smart, hardworking and don’t require a daily task list in order to be productive
  • Organization, determination and attention to detail are only a few of your unique talents
  • A gift for complex problem solving – defining the strategy and then executing on the plan
  • Technical proficiency – you love finding tools that make your job easier
  • You have a refined and artful personal style – your written communication is immaculate, and your phone voice is captivating – you’re the whole package!
  • Availability to work about 30 hours per week – evening events are a regular occurrence
