Calgary Dollars focuses on community economic development, and to keep the mechanics of the program running smoothly, we enlist volunteers to assist with membership renewal and growth, funding requirements, data entry, business development, and marketing initiatives.

We are seeking a committed Coordinator to manage these mechanics, assist with them, and coordinate our volunteers efforts around them.

This is an opportunity to be involved in an energetic social justice agency, with a group of people who are actively trying to make a difference in the work their do, focusing on supporting local businesses and initiatives through a local complementary currency. Come and join us and help out make the wheels of this program continue to spin effectively, so we can assist in developing strong communities for social action.
