“As we move forward, we need team members to help us function efficiently as an agency and provide critical support,” said Sarah Story, MAC executive director. “We want capable and talented people in these roles to join our team of dedicated and lively professionals.”
What does the Fiscal Officer do?

The position is also responsible for the agency’s payroll, processing payments, and travel requests and reimbursements. The fiscal officer’s work touches all areas of the agency, requiring an individual with strong team skills, in addition to knowledge of fiscal procedures.
What does the Systems Manager do?

This work includes entering data on grants, creating reports and working with the company who supplies the system to make fixes or updates to MAC’s grant programs.
