FTC PA 2021-22 Season #17 – Treasurer and Bookkeeper Openings – PFR

Hello again FTC PA Teams and Volunteers,

This is to announce that we have two very important openings in our Pennsylvania FIRST Robotics organization that we are currently recruiting for in our finance and account administration area – Treasurer and Bookkeeper. Please see attached document detailing the responsibilities for each.

These are both very much part time positions with the busiest and most challenging period being the active FTC Season (like now). While we have defined the positions separately, they certainly can be combined into one realm of responsibility as has been accomplished by the amazing Lise Hackett, who is stepping aside to pursue and enjoy other challenges. We cannot say enough about Lise’ contribution to PFR over the past 10+ years of course, however we view this as an opportunity for others from our incredible and able robotics community to experience the inner workings of our organization and gain invaluable experience through the contribution of their skills and energy.

For a little background, Pennsylvania FIRST® Robotics is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation established in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We were established in 2012 with the mission of furthering the mission of FIRST Inspires in Pennsylvania. The all-volunteer PA FIRST Tech Challenge program is led by the FTC PA Program Delivery Partner (PDP) and operated by the Pennsylvania FIRST Robotics organization.


In reaching out to our community we will consider anyone interested who has the commensurate skills and background. Conversely, we will also seriously consider those who have the passion to learn and grow from the experience of working with a nonprofit. As such, FIRST alumni or others in your family or circle of acquaintances exploring or who have emerging, new careers in accounting, finance, business administration or operations are invited to apply.

These are immediate openings and we hope to fill both (either individually or combined) be the end of the November, or sooner, to allow for training.

Please do share this broadly with your circle of contacts who you may think would be interested and benefit from the experience and can fully commit their time as described in the Job Descriptions.

Please be sure to reply and apply to ftc@pennfirst.org and treasurer@pennfirst.org

Thank you all for your consideration.

Best Regards.
