I don't see why not.  Sure, you're a non-profit, but you're not a government agency or anything.  You should be able to hire anyone you like without advertising the position first.

That said, I'm not a lawyer (nor do I play one on TV).

Hi All,

Thanks for the advice a ways back on hiring mechanics as contractors.  I may just be paranoid worrying about things but I have another employment question.

Say a community bike shop wanted to hire a person for the summer to develop a board of directors as well as youth and free bike programming....Is this something we have to advertise publicly about or can we just make the decision as a collective and hire someone?

We know someone that is perfect for the job (experience and enthusiasm),
