BCAMP, the B.C. Association of Magazine Publishers, is looking for a new Executive Director and a new Project Coordinator. Word on the sidewalk is that candidates with some experience of lobbying government and arts councils (eg. the B.C. Government and the B.C. Arts Council) will be looked on kindly.
For many years BCAMP has avoided paying the fare from Vancouver to Victoria where a strong Executive Director might press for tax credits, government advertising in B.C. magazines, proper cultural funding, and generally chat up government functionaries and politicos who know nearly nothing about the huge magazine industry in B.C. (as described by Rowly Lorimer in 2005 in a study available in a pdf).
Prospective candidates should send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org forthwith.
[UPDATE: According to an item in mastheadonline, Anna Torres resigned from BCAMP as executive director to take a position with Vancouver private company that manages health and science associations.]
