The League of Women Voters of Portland is looking for a new part-time Office Manager. In the past, our paid office managers have contributed essential services to advance our mission. At the beginning of the pandemic, we lost our former office manager. Since then, our volunteers (and especially our Vice President for Administration) have done the essential office work. Now, we are ready to once again pay for the help we need.
