The Near Southwest Preparedness Alliance (NSPA) seeks to fill the position of Medically Vulnerable Populations Coordinator.

The MVP Coordinator must deal effectively with long-term and specialized care facilities and their administrators, governmental entities, hospital and public health officials, public safety officials, and other involved partners.  He or she must be proficient in oral and written communication skills and have a strong grasp of current computer technology. Emergency management experience is desirable but not required. Frequent travel within the 16-county NSPA region and travel outside the region is required. 

The MVP Coordinator also serves as the NSPA outreach and social media coordinator, so it is highly desirable to possess a broad familiarity with social media, webmaster duties (currently using Wordpress) and related skills.
