General Job Description:
Organization Overview Maddux Achilles Haggard was born on Feb. 4, 2005, with a condition incompatible with life. On the sixth day of his young life, his parents Mike and Cheryl Haggard had to make the excruciating decision to take him off life support. Before they did, they called photographer Sandy Puc' to take portraits of them cradling their son. Puc' photographed the couple with Maddux at the hospital before he was removed from life support and after when he was free from the tubes and the wires that had sustained him. Those tender photographs documenting Maddux’s eternal connection with his parents inspired Cheryl Haggard and Sandy Puc' to begin the nonprofit organization, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS). Since 2005, NILMDTS has provided tens of thousands of parents with the free professional portraits of their baby. NILMDTS administers a network of over 1600 volunteer photographers in the United States and around the world. Volunteers carry out the NILMDTS mission worldwide with the support of a small staff at the NILMDTS Headquarters in Centennial, CO. Managing over 1600 volunteers, with a small staff and minimal budget requires extreme efficiency. We also utilize technology frequently as part of our everyday operations. All staff members wear many hats. The administrative assistant partners with staff to serve as a first “point of entry” into the NILMDTS headquarters office. General responsibilities include all administrative functions. This individual needs to be reliable, organized, and compassionate. We are looking for someone who has a broad range of skills in a multitude of areas. This position is responsible for recruiting and coordinating office volunteers who will work to achieve the expectations for this position. The administrative assistant needs to have strong written and verbal communication skills as well as strong computer skills.
