Social Media Specialists (Moderators)
The need for balanced moderation continues. There are over 100 areas across several social media platforms which need to be monitored and supervised. Moderation staff does more than enforce rules. They are also content creators who start lively, creative discussions and help the group stay engaged. Training period includes a series of steps to develop proficiency with moderation skills, such as active engagement, application of our Code of Conduct, and regular observation of discussion threads. There will be an application process and an interview. This is a long-term volunteer position that will work closely with Civic.Asgardia and Asgardia’s Community Chapters. We hope to work with our staff for months to come.
National Chapter Advocates and Assistant Advocates
We work directly with our members through our Community Chapters. In the future, there will be member groups in many cities around the globe. For now, we begin with National Chapters in countries that have a significant population of Asgardians.
Each National Chapter is led by an Advocate who coordinates the staff and resources of that organization, serving as a single point-of-contact for an Asgardia Chapter. The Advocate works with the Assistant Advocates to create an active, engaging, and informative presence that connects local members with the global Asgardia community and which promotes the mission of NGO Asgardia.
All staff of National Chapters are expected to manage the social media presence for their group, helping to moderate Forums, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts and other media platforms. Asgardia orientation training and moderation training are provided.
Many National Chapters have yet to be formed, but these existing chapters need additional staff.
