Part-Time Administrator Wanted

The Twin Cities Men’s Center, a Minneapolis non-profit celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, is looking for a permanent part-time Administrator. This position will be 15-20 hours per week at $15/hour, spread over 4 or 5 days (the exact schedule is somewhat flexible). The Administrator is the primary point of contact at TCMC for the men who use our services, vendors, and the general public. The Administrator is also responsible for directly handling or delegating all administrative tasks at TCMC.

Specific responsibilities include answering and returning phone calls, replying to emails, making referrals to other non-profits and services, keeping the TCMC space clean and tidy, scheduling presentations and presenters, maintaining signs in our space, making bank deposits, maintaining supplies, attending monthly TCMC Board meetings, and many other miscellaneous tasks.

We are looking for someone who is extremely detail-oriented, tech savvy and generally experienced with computer and mobile technology (email, word processing, social media, etc.), with excellent listening & communication skills and a friendly and empathetic demeanor. Because TCMC serves men in crisis and transition, it is important that the Administrator be able to calmly and professionally respond to men who are looking for help while working through difficult issues. Finally, the Administrator must be non-judgmental and accepting of all sexual orientations, gender identities, races, faiths, and life styles. In short, you must be accepting of all people.

If you are interested, please send a cover letter and resume to tcmc@tcmc.org with the subject line “Administrator Resume” and be sure to include a complete job history.

Thanks!

Give to the Gerald Obremski
Anger Management Scholarship Fund

Gerald was a long time facilitator of the anger management program and a treasurer of the twin cities men's center. For over 12 years Gerald conducted classes and generously donated not only his time but also office space in Hopkins. Gerald was always reaching out to other men, giving them support to help men become more than their childhood patterns. Last September, Gerald passed away.

A scholarship fund to partially cover the cost of the class( now $250) has been set up to honor Gerry's legacy and to continue the work of helping men. If you are grateful for the anger management class, please send a contribution so others can take this class. Please send in the coupon below with your contribution.

Thank You to TCMC from Randy

The TCMC 40th anniversary gathering was beautifully celebrated by over 50 people. Thanks to the committee: John Ruud, James Kaul, John Hesch, Harry Greenberg, Dick Madigan, Tom Weaver, Jim Heaney, Gary Flatgaard, Jamie Wellik and Damon Starks. Also, thank you for the generous use of Norm and John's B & B.

I was humbled and emotionally touched by the acknowledgement I got from men when Joe Szurszewski, Board Chair, presented me with a generous cash gift to honor my 30 1/2 years as general manager of TCMC.

The testimonies of men and women during circle check-in honored TCMC with gratitude for the healing power of support by other men. My wife, Trudy, and I were touched by their stories. I was humbled by my awareness that I touched the lives of most of these men as they became acquainted with the support offered by TCMC.

I am grateful for the 30 1/2 years that I've been part of an organization like TCMC. So, GO TCMC -- spread the word about the important work you offer to the community.

Humbly submitted,
Randy Genrich
