Convene, an award-winning monthly magazine covering the international meetings and conventions industry that is published by the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA), is looking for a full-time Associate Editor in the New York City area to join our small, hardworking team.

Key responsibilities will include reporting and writing feature articles and columns for Convene’s print magazine and website; proofreading story layouts both remotely and in person during Convene’s monthly closing process in New York City; and representing Convene on press trips and at industry conferences as needed. The position is remote, requiring a home office, as well as the ability to spend two to three days each month at our New York City design firm’s studio.

Convene’s personality is thoughtful, expansive, and fun — a general-interest magazine about the meetings industry that happens to be published by a professional association. The ideal candidate is a strong, inventive writer with an eye for new trends in education, culture, technology, and business; a grammar fetishist’s attention to detail; and the ability to handle multiple assignments simultaneously. We want someone who is excited by media of all types and will introduce us to new ways of shaping and presenting our content.

Familiarity with MS Word, InDesign, WordPress, and major social-media platforms required.
