Conference Operations Manager (temporary)

Every year, we hold the Wellville Gathering, a three-day event that brings together our partners from the Wellville 5, the Wellville National team and Advisory Board, and other advisors and experts, to learn with and from each other.

We are looking for a detail-oriented conference operations manager to support the our in-person Gatherings. This is a short-term contract role, working with the internal Wellville team:

  • Planning/logistics: Book flights for participants, Identify/coordinate with local vendors (eg, transportation, meeting space, caterers, etc.), track all details for up to 80 participants (collecting bio and photo for the program, tracking all travel details), manage the contract cycle and payment processes, etc.
  • Event producing: Serve as onsite event producer in-person Gatherings in one of the W5 communities. Work with vendors and the Wellville team to make sure the event runs seamlessly.  (All travel expenses will be covered by Wellville.)
  • Payments: After the Gathering, ensure vendors are paid and oversee participant expense-reimbursement process.


Storyteller (freelance)

Wellville is seeking a freelance solutions-journalist style writer to help tell Wellville stories, with the ultimate goal of joining and amplifying the narrative change about what it takes to create wellbeing for all. Specifically:

  1. Document and publish stories emerging from the Wellville 5, and tie those stories into our big-picture narrative about the value of long-term thinking and investing in community health and wellbeing. We’re specifically looking for a solutions-journalism approach – highlighting the solutions, but not shying away from imperfections, barriers, etc. 
  2. Add these stories into the already-in-progress national narrative change around what it takes to build healthy, thriving communities. 
  3. Work with our Communications Director to adapt Wellville’s global message (as we continue to learn), and spread that message into spaces of influence.
