Employer: City of Liberal
Job Title: Tourism Assistant

The fundamental reason this classification exists is to perform skilled secretarial and general clerical work, which requires typing, filing and related activities for the Convention and Tourism Department. Independent judgment in the disposition of routine matters for one or more supervisors is normally an important element of these positions. This class is distinguished from the Convention and Tourism Assistant II primarily by fewer duties requiring decisions affecting programs or administrative operations, a less complex series of secretarial and clerical tasks, and the absence of regular supervision exercised over clerical and secretarial assistants.
