How is PERC setup and run?


PERC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, who are responsible for overseeing any senior staff. Staff are hired part-time according to funding availability and need. Usually, there is one paid staff person, the PERC Coordinator. They are responsible for coordinating temporary staff, students, volunteers, and interns, managing the office, coordinating writers for the PEN, representing PERC in meetings and at events, and generally answering email and making sure bills get paid. Senior staff are largely responsible for hiring any temporary staff or interns, with the support of the Board. Currently, PERC does not have an Executive Director, but one may be hired at some point. Volunteers run the gamut from writers who produce a single article and move on, to long-term newspaper columnists or other roles that persist over several years. Learn more here.
