 The Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center, a non-profit organization founded in 1978 to promote Carpatho-Rusyn cultural knowledge, is seeking someone to handle book orders, including sales, packaging, and sending, as well as minor business tasks such as filing the annual non-profit tax status (a simple “check a few boxes” process), keeping a list of customers, and sending out book advertisement flyers.
The business and book sales manager maintains contact with Professor Paul R. Magocsi, president of the C-RRC, regarding all aspects of the work. The hours of work are completely flexible and are determined by the individual. Approximately eight hours may be required some weeks and up to fifteen hours during high order periods. Increased time spent on the job means increased sales, and the manager receives 10% of sales revenue. Some ability to read book titles in Rusyn is welcome, but not required.
For the past 36 years, the C-RRC has made available dozens of books in English and Rusyn, as well as pamphlets, maps, and educational cassettes to those interested in learning about the history, language, literature, and culture of Carpatho-Rusyns. The manager will derive much satisfaction from keeping current with the latest available books and materials about Rusyns, as well as from helping spread knowledge of Rusyn history and culture to scholars, students, and all who are interested in increasing their understanding. 
For further information, contact Patricia Krafcik, secretary of the C-RRC, at (360) 786-6580 or e-mail her (patkrafcik@gmail.com). You may also contact Elaine Rusinko at rusinko@umbc.edu.
