Videographer Needed

The Townsend Housing Authority (THA) is looking for a Townsend resident volunteer to be trained to run the audio/video recording equipment used to video tape THA open meetings that are available for public viewing on YouTube. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to help the Town of Townsend and a prime opportunity for a student in media/IT to gain valuable field experience. This important position will assist the authority in the THA’s mission to be completely transparent to the citizens of Townsend with all THA business and future projects. Interested persons are cordially invited to visit the Volunteer Form link below to complete and submit interest to the Town Clerk for processing. All submissions will be reviewed and carefully considered by the THA. Because this need is urgent, your swiftness to apply is requested. Please note our meetings are generally held on Wednesday evenings an average of once a month but this often changes. We will notify all applicants of our decision by either phone or e-mail.

>You can find a volunteer response form here!<
