KCBA is recruiting to replace the editor of the Bar Bulletin, who after fourteen years of outstanding service is relocating out of state.
The Bar Bulletin is a monthly publication for lawyers and judges of news, analysis, and commentary of local, state, and national legal topics. The editor develops monthly issue "themes" and solicits volunteer authors to write 400- to 2000-word articles that the editor subsequently reviews for legal accuracy, grammar, and style. Working with bar staff, an editorial advisory committee, a graphic designer, and volunteer authors, the editor combines editorial content with staff-provided external and internal display advertising and association news content to create the final 32 page publication each month.
A detailed production schedule dictates due dates throughout the month for the editor's various responsibilities. The time commitment for the editor is between 15-20 hours per month (4-5 hours per week). While not a salaried position, an honorarium is paid by the bar to recognize the editor's efforts.
The Association seeks applicants for this position with relevant experience serving as a publication editor at a nonprofit organization, as a law review editor, or other related journalism activities. A law degree is strongly preferred. This is a renewable one year appointment. Additional details will be confirmed in a final engagement letter.
To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume to Andrew Prazuch, KCBA Executive Director, firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not send sample materials; these will be requested if you are selected for an interview. Please submit your application by Monday, October 28, 2019 to ensure you are considered in the initial review of applications. Learn more about the Bar Bulletin online at www.kcba.org/barbulletin.
