The Michigan Farmers Market Association (MIFMA) is seeking proposals for a contracted Curriculum Writer to compile, organize, and write a curriculum for our 
Market Manager Certificate Program

The Market Manager Certificate Program is a voluntary program designed by MIFMA in 2011 to encourage farmers market managers to pursue leadership skills and professional development on topics essential to market management. Market managers are recognized with a certificate upon completion of the full program that acknowledges the market manager is a trained professional. 

The Curriculum Writer will work with MIFMA staff to organize and write the curriculum based on the content and resources MIFMA has developed over the twelve-year span of the program. We expect the work product to include one text document communicating to future program facilitators how to present the course content (graphic design of the document is optional and would need to adhere to MIFMA’s design and brand standards). If deemed appropriate, this could include annotated slide decks of existing program presentations for instructor-led trainings. We do not anticipate the need to create graphics, audio or visual files, assessments, or other online or printed materials unless the development of those items is preapproved by MIFMA. Upon completion, the Curriculum Writer will be recognized as an author of the curriculum while the intellectual property rights will continue to be owned by MIFMA.
