Is it appropriate to email a potential employer and ask what qualifications they are looking for?

There is a list of job responsibilities, but no list of qualifications that they are looking for. Here is their ad: "Marketing and Promotion Coordinator This is a full-time position that entitles the employee to all benefits. This position reports to the director of communications and public affairs and consists of fundraising and developing public awareness through special events and promotions. General Responsibilities to include: - Design, implement, maintain, and track annual fund activities utilizing special events, promotions, and any other campaigns. - Assist chief development officer and director of communications in drafting an annual departmental plan in conjunction with the organizational budget and implement that plan within the confines of the overall development department budget. - Work as a team with development staff. - Serve as staff representative on appropriate committees. - Perform speaking engagements as assigned by the director of communications and chief development officer. - Conceptualize and execute special events. - Represent [the company] at benefit events and educational activities when necessary. - Assist annual fund manager with volunteer recruitment activities including presentations to businesses, civic groups, schools, etc. A complete job description is available upon request. Send applications & job resume by April 4, 2011" Should I email them and ask them for a complete job description and hope that it includes the qualifications they are looking for? Or should I just email and ask about qualifications? I have 1.5 years of marketing experience, but I don't have a degree of any kind so that's what I am worried about.

I would email in your resume and ask the question in the email. The worst case scenario is that you're not qualified for the position and you won't be interviewed. Therefore, you'll lose nothing by sending in your resume.
