One Santa’s Helper Needed Immediately!

We urgently need a volunteer to help our bookstore director, Andrew Stimson, package books/pottery/embroidery to mail in time for Christmas. Andrew needs help managing our holiday orders. (The assistant we were counting on got another job.)

Our volunteers will:

  1. Help fill book/pottery orders, take orders to the post office, keep our inventory straight and organize shelves.
  2. Gain general office experience by helping answer telephones, sorting mail, and typing up articles;
  3. Earn a letter of recommendation and our eternal gratitude for helping during our seasonal rush.

Applicants should e-mail telephone our administrative director, Alex Begley, at admin @wrmea.com or call 202-939-6050 ext. 103.

Our publishing office and bookstore is located at 1902 18th Street, Washington, DC 20009, near the Dupont Circle Metro stop in Adams Morgan.

The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs magazine is still accepting applications for its winter internship program (for more information visit our Web site: http://www.wrmea.com/interns.html).

More Information About our Magazine:

The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs published by the American Educational Trust in Washington, DC, has the largest paid subscription circulation of any magazine in its field in North America. The founders, Ambassador Andrew Killgore and Richard Curtiss, are retired U.S. foreign service officers with long service in the Middle East. Our readers include members of Congress, journalists, U.S. and foreign diplomats, academics, teachers, professionals and others who feel the magazine is by far the best, and perhaps the only, source of balanced and accurate information concerning U.S. relations with Middle Eastern states. Judging by the names, about 50 percent of our subscribers are Arab Americans or Muslim Americans.

We cover U.S. politics and policy-making as they relate to the Middle East, activities of the Israel lobby, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and issues of human rights and democracy in the Middle East. In addition, we carry substantial coverage of Middle East-related cultural, political, and academic meetings across the U.S. We also have a catalog of 600 book and DVDs titles, all available at the best discounts in North America, in each issue of the magazine. We also sell Palestinian handicrafts, in an effort to keep Palestinian artisans employed and educate Americans about Palestinian’s heritage.

While we are proud of our current circulation, we also realize that our goals—to help bring about a just Middle East peace and greater understanding of Arabs in American life—cannot be accomplished without the widest participation of all communities. A one-year subscription to the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, is only $29.
