FunDiS Board of Directors Opening

FunDiS is seeking new Board Members to help breathe life into our organization and our mission. We currently have seven board members with a variety of skill sets and experience. We are looking for active members that participate in the health of FunDiS and who are willing to do the work necessary to help grow and sustain the organization. We are seeking board members with professional skills (especially accounting, fundraising, legal), and those with connections to new communities, corporate sponsors, foundations, and helpful individuals. An interest in fungi is always helpful, too! Board member terms are two years and we have board meetings every other month. Please send an email to FunDiS Director Gabriela D'Elia at director@fundis.org with inquiries or suggestions.

Mushroom Observer Biodiversity Database Coordinator

We are looking for a volunteer to help us expand our FunDiS Biodiversity Database (now only hosted on iNaturalist) to Mushroom Observer (MO). The framework has been established for the Biodiversity Database on iNat, but we need a volunteer to lead it to fruition on MO, watch over its growth, and coordinate its operation. MO has some pretty active and high quality contributors, so we've been looking forward to developing the vetted database. The MO Coordinator role would also be responsible for leading communications with MO when needed, especially towards the beginning of development to figure out exactly what is needed to make our Biodiversity Database an MO success. Do high quality observations of macrofungi make you happy? Do you have strong organizational and communication skills and want to learn about fungal biodiversity and conservation?

Biodiversity Database iNaturalist Identifier

The FunDiS Biodiversity Database has a network of Identifiers who add, suggest, or support IDs, helping maintain data quality. This means that observers can get their observations identified by professional mycologists and highly-ranked amateur identifier. Please reach out if you'd like to volunteer your skills as a part of a North American-wide conservation effort to help understand and protect fungi and their habitats. By adding IDs to observations, you will help community scientists learn fungal taxonomy and help vet our database, creating the high quality data needed to assess species for the conservation community.

Digital Designer

Do you have experience with Adobe Illustrator, ArcMap, or other digital design programs? We could use some helpful hands in designing new resources here and there for FunDiS conservation programs. Your designs could help engage a community scientist movement! You will work closely with the Director and other FunDiS volunteers.
