The Libertarian Party of Northern Virginia’s social media communications is handled by a dedicated team of volunteers to discover, evaluate, draft, publish, moderate, analyze, and promote content to serve LPNOVA’s goals.
We are looking for a volunteer to help on our efforts with Twitter, assisting one other volunteer as part of a larger communications team of ~6 people.
Social Media Publishers evaluate, build, and schedule content to an assigned social media platform (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram). This content is often provided by the wider community although Publishers may also create or source content on their own while following provided guidelines. This role involves creativity for crafting descriptive blurbs or hashtags as well as attention to best practices or guidelines. Publishers may also handle promotion of the platform and moderation of comments.
This is a very flexible position, with publishers having the option of being “on duty” for set days each week for their respective platform. It is estimated they would spend approximately 1-3 hours per week at their own leisure to evaluate, build, and schedule content.
Types of Content
Examples of types of content that would be evaluated and published by this position:
- LPNOVA events, candidate posts, and announcements.
- Content regarding LPNOVA’s policy priorities with a local perspective added whenever possible.
- Content regarding local news of interest even if it is not directly relevant to LPNOVA or its policy priorities.
- Engagement with local community leaders to spread the ideals of liberty, freedom, and choice in local policy.
- Events, calls-to-action, announcements, and volunteer opportunities from “local libertarians” and liberty-friendly allies.
- Generic campaigns such as “This Day in Liberty”, “Off-Topic Tuesdays” for non-political posts, or “Sunday Spotlights” to give recognitions.
The Libertarian Party of Northern Virginia’s mission with our communications is to connect and educate liberty-friendly voters and other residents within northern Virginia regardless of political party or ideological affiliation on topics of fiscal responsibility, economic freedom, civil liberties, social justice, government transparency, and electoral reform.
This is achieved with an emphasis on discussions around local issues, promoting community service, publishing policy analysis or op-eds, mobilizing volunteers for political campaigns or policy petitioning, and bringing our followers into our many in-person or virtual events.
We lead by example for political discourse, encourage civic engagement, and take responsibility for the character of our community.
