Job Advertisement Policy
There is never any charge to the hiring institution for running a position available ad in the Portland AGO newsletter--The Vox Humana. We will run the ad for three months, and if we do not hear from you, will discontinue it at that time. We will, however, happily continue to maintain it if you so request. Obviously, we would appreciate knowing if you fill the position.
Finally, we ask that if you hire a person through our Guild, that the church pay for their membership in the AGO for the following year. The dollar amount will vary with the membership category of the individual, but currently would be less than $100.
