If you are interested in any of these positions, talk to the current mismanagement!
The pack is led (or misled) by the Grand Master or Grand Mattress (aka GM), in line with the general tradition of minimum organization. However, this is a facade, as there is indeed much that has to be organized when it comes to reining in weekly chaos and planning special events. A successful GM makes these chores seem transparent to the pack, but it is much work nevertheless. The GM calls periodic meetings and bails the hash out of trouble at times. Think this is too much responsibility? Think again. One of the best GMs the hash has ever seen was a dog. The real job of GM is to pry money out of Hash Cash, who keeps it tucked underneath his mattress guarded by a 17 pound lobster.
Trail itself is marked by different volunteer hares each hash. The Hare Raiser keeps track of upcoming hashes and gets 'volunteers' to hare based on experience, matching new hares with a more experienced one. Each hasher is expected to set a hash periodically. Trails should change geographical locations regularly to avoid overlapping (crossing) previous trails.
The RA is the arbiter of hash tradition and master of ceremonies at the on-in. When in the circle, the RA is always right, even when wrong. Other than presiding over the circle, the RA is responsible to ensure that deserving thirsts are quenched; they are fully responsible for the weather and the taste of the beer. The RA also makes sure the hot line is updated during trail.
Welcomes/sacrifices virgins to the hash.
The individual who tracks hash funds is known as the Hash Cash. The Hash Cash collects the fees and provides reimbursement for the food or refreshments used at the hash. Hash Cash is responsible for protecting the Hash's asses and general accounting of the funds.
The Hash Scribe does the write-up of each r*n and disseminates said Hash Trash. There are several good reasons to become scribe. The most important is that you get to write down anything dumb and stupid that your fellow hashers have done on trail, while avoiding writing about all the dumb and stupid things you have done on trail. Considering your current scribe is an engineer who can't spell, has no sense of direction, disappears for months at a time, and hardly does a write-up even when he does show up, the bar to entry to becoming a scribe is pretty low. It's really quite easy. If you are interested, come talk to me and you can guest scribe for a week to try it out. If you are new to the job or are filling in, you may consider using Jolly Green's Guide to Scribing - 69 Rules.
This is not the position you may think it is (I found out the hard way, don't make my mistake). The Hash Ho promotes Boston events to other hashes, usually by sending emails to the other hash lists. Pretty low commitment job. If no one volunteers for this position, we just give it to the hasher who uses their flesh the most and make them promote our hash to the other kennels.
Does web stuff.
Brings and sells shirts and other odd hash souvenirs (haberdashery) to the hash. The haberdasher is responsible for keeping an inventory of the haberdashery and selling as much as possible at the highest prices to the biggest suckers.
Buys and pours beer during the circle helping the RA. The beer wench may also serve as back up Hash Cash. Take this position, and you will be the most loved person in the hash. Who is not completely grateful to the person who gets them beer?
Holiday Party Organizers
Organizes the holiday party. Again, a great way for some of the newer hashers to get more involved. This position requires very little time commitment.

Organizes our Marath*n weekend event. This is a great position to get more involved with the hash. Marath*n is our biggest event of the year, so the Marath*n chairs get a lot of help and support from the rest of mismanagement.
