Job Listings and Substitutes

Job Openings - Substitutes needed!

If you are available as a substitute organist, please place your name on the Merrimack Valley Chapter substitute list by contacting Cynthia Arsenault. You do not need to be available every Sunday. If you are free on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, for example, let Cynthia know. Also, let her know if you take one of these positions or know of one that has been filled. Churches sometimes fail to notify her when the position has been filled. Please note that listings will remain on the list for no more than six months unless renewed with Ms. Arenault or removed sooner by request of the church.

A current list of members who may be available for substituting can be obtained by clicking here.

Please note that by signing up for substituting, the information you provide to Cynthia, including your phone number and email address, may be made public on the substitute list, which anyone can download. The chapter will not be responsible for how that information is used by anyone
who downloads the list.

Below is a list of churches seeking regular employees. You may click on the church name to go to the church's website, if available (opens in a new window). You can also check the listings on the National Headquarters website. You must have a member number from National to do so; it's on your American Organist magazine.
