1.COPY EDITOR POSITION OPEN
Sutherland Institute is seeking to hire an experienced copy editor. Sutherland produces a large and increasing quantity of external communications – essays, policy reports and briefs, booklets, promotional material, etc. – in both print and electronic formats (newsletters, web site, social media, etc.).
While the copy editor role is a contract position, we expect that it will entail up to ½ to ¾ of a normal work schedule. This person will work closely with Sutherland staff and graphic designers in the production of the Institute’s external communications.
Candidates should be well-experienced in copy editing, perform effectively within deadlines, exercise patience in working with others, be responsive to changing deadlines and last-minute needs, and easily work within Sutherland’s style guidelines.
Interested applicants should send their resumes to Lisa Montgomery firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.UTAH’S FREEDOM CONFERENCE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
We encourage you to plan now to participate in Utah’s Freedom Conference: Reclaiming Our Constitutional Heritage on Saturday, September 18, 2010, at the Radisson Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown.
Sponsored by Utah United, A Coalition of Utah’s Pro-Republic Organizations, this day-long educational event will feature locally- and nationally-respected specialists, including Dan Byfield, president of the American Land Foundation, and Karen Budd-Falen, a successful defender of land-use cases in federal courts. Two of Utah’s congressmen, Rep. Rob Bishop, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, will address the Tenth Amendment and related topics, and Bill Howell, co-author of the book Statehood and an expert on state and federal lands, will speak on Utah’s recent state sovereignty legislation. Other presenters and workshop facilitators will include members of the Utah Legislature and leaders among the state’s citizen-advocacy groups.
Participants in this one-day conference will receive the information and tools necessary to protect state sovereignty and organize and energize grassroots activities in their local communities.
This action-packed day kicks off with a prayer breakfast with Stephen Pratt, founder of Liberty and Learning, followed by a mix of plenary sessions, hands-on workshops, great food, and association with others in the cause of freedom. For more information, click here.
