We need a person that has some comfort level being the publicity person for EMBA. The job would require finding and creating some stories of success at the table (even at the 0-49er level) and issuing a "Press Release" to those players home newspapers.
An ideal candidate would also be familiar with social media and be capable of posting on Facebook (Twitter, Google+ and Snapchat a plus) those stories and notices of up coming tournaments.
This is a critical job, if you can fufill the goals please give back to the game you love.
Write firstname.lastname@example.org with your application today!
Thanks to all who came in spite of the weather!

Youth on the National Stage
EMBA's own Harrison Luba was recently written up in Frank Stewart's nationally syndicated column for making an impossible 3NT. Another young local player, Alex Frieden, is the head of a bridge club at Carleton College.
Harrison Luba of Lynnfield will be on the Under 16 US bridge team vying for the Koç University Cup this summer in China. In December his squad won the US Bridge Federation team trials in Atlanta.
Also representing the U.S. will be Zach Grossack of Newton on the Under 26 Team, playing for the Patiño Cup. Zach, a Tufts student, has won three North American championships, and last year won two world junior championships.
Other New England players at the Atlanta trials include Alexander Frieden of Brookline, Marley Cedrone of Framingham, Zach Posternak of Sharon, Jack Donaghue of East Longmeadow, and Jonathan Baumel, a Harvard sophomore.
