Accessibility Coordinator

We’re looking for someone to serve as an in-house consultant to ensure that all meetings, activities and events (with particular focus on Flame Con) are as accessible as possible!

  • Educating and assisting all volunteers and coordinators on accessibility protocols

You’d be available by email at least once a week and in contact with our Board/Flame Con Steering Committee minimum once a month.

Social Media / Content Coordinator

Do you believe an Insta story is worth a thousand words? Do you have a sixth sense for what will be trending on Twitter? Do you get a rush from stitching the perfect response to a TikTok? Do you run to Facebook to break down the latest official trailer release? #Awesome! Geeks OUT is looking for folks to keep the conversation going across our Geeks OUT & Flame Con social media accounts.

You’ll shape our voice by:

  • Regularly updating our feeds to let folks know what we’re up to

  • Knowledge of New York’s quirky social scene (think bars, book cafes, and more!)

  • Ability to plan, staff, and manage events

You’d be available by email at least once a week and in contact with our Outreach team once monthly.

Programming Coordinator
