Do you dream of thoroughly planning and flawlessly executing high-stakes events with A-list guests?  Do you live and breathe planning, strategy, systems, and logistics?  Do you get satisfaction from developing and perfecting efficient project management systems?  We have an opportunity for a creative, detail-oriented, entrepreneurial, and hard-working candidate to join AEI’s development team.  You will join a group of talented professionals who are connecting AEI donors and donor prospects with AEI’s innovative, industry-leading scholarship all around the country to advance our mission of expanding liberty, increasing individual opportunity, and strengthening free enterprise.

You would assist with AEI’s donor events from the strategic planning phase through execution, working with a top-notch team to develop event concepts and bring them to fruition. 

The ideal candidate will be happy in a fast-paced, demanding, team-oriented environment and also comfortable taking initiative and working independently.  Day-to-day responsibilities include database management, metrics analysis, event invitations, managing guest RSVPs, and supporting event logistics and execution.  These responsibilities require strong writing and communication skills; the ability to meet tight deadlines and juggle competing priorities; and a forward-looking, proactive, efficient, and results-focused mind-set.
