Oakland can use another moderator Oakland needs volunteers to be Local Group Moderators!

*Moderators must live here. *Training is provided.

If you're interested in making a contribution to your community and your planet; learning a little about online community building and media relations; and keeping stuff out of the local landfill, please keep reading!

Being a moderator doesn't require a lot of time, but it does require some dedication. There is lots of support available, it's fun and is a small thing that can make such a big difference. And with more than one moderator, you can take turns monitoring weekends and holidays and go on vacation without worrying.

Simply answer the following questions in the Application below, and send it to us. You'll hear back within a week.

NB: All information is strictly confidential and will not be shared or otherwise distributed outside of management. We ask for some personal information for safety and liability reasons and to be able to contact you in an emergency.

Thanks for your consideration
