We're Hiring a 2024 Expo/50th Anniversary Event Planner!


Now hiring: 2024 AERO Expo / 50th Anniversary Event Planner

AERO is offering a five-month contract position to project-manage our annual statewide Expo, a 2.5 day, 200-person gathering hosted in a different Montana community each year. This year our legacy organization is celebrating 50 years, making this Expo event particularly meaningful. Our 2024 event takes place Oct 4-6, 2024 in Billings, Montana, where the organization was founded in 1974.

This is a chance to help take our legacy organization to the next level as we celebrate our history and embark on a 10-year strategic initiative to grow a resilient and reliable Montana food system for all Montanans. We are drawing in a broader, more diverse public into vital conversations and collaborative engagement focused on stewarding Montana-grown, health-giving food resources for the future health and well-being of Montana’s citizens, families, and communities.

The position works closely with the Executive Director. The ideal candidate is a highly autonomous and high performing individual with proven experience in event planning and project management. They are comfortable supervising others and coordinating vendors, speakers, tours, and volunteers. They enjoy managing the flow of the day at the event, have strong attention to detail, and are comfortable using Eventbrite or similar event management platforms. A team player who works well with others, they have a deep regard for the Montana values of stewardship, reciprocity, and kindness, and an appreciation for the value of strong, food- and nutrition-secure communities.

We are now reviewing applications for this five-month contract position.  The position is open until filled.
