Trail Conference Archivist

Position Details: 

Help preserve the history of the Trail Conference and the Trails in the New York Metro Area 

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference will be 100 years old in 2020.  The personal computer was not around for the majority of that time period, so it is easy to imagine how many non-digitized artifacts and memorabilia the Trail Conference has collected.  Add to that the growth of the organization over the last 10 years, and one can see that the Trail Conference’s need for a skilled archivist is great, now more than ever.


If you want to combine your interest in historical documents with your love of the outdoors, then this position is ideal for you.  As the person in charge of sorting through all types of archive materials, from old newsletters to old photos to old maps to old land documents to current books and maps, you will meet the organization’s need to not only see where we’re coming from but also to see where we’re headed.  All still-relevant archive pieces will get catalogued in an Excel spreadsheet – you can customize the look and feel of this file as you see fit.  As archivist you will build on the valuable information that other volunteers have amassed and recorded.  When you become part of our team, you will get to work with the people most knowledgeable about the organization, including key volunteers who will share accumulated knowledge of the organization.
