The CEO/President is responsible, along with the Board of Directors, for the long-term strategic success of the organization.  Managing the growth and financial health of a nonprofit requires the CEO/President to navigate fluidly between daily tasks, with a watchful eye on the future impact of current day decisions.  To do this successfully, the role includes the need for internal and external focus, an understanding of the nonprofit landscape, and strong people leadership skills. The ideal candidate will demonstrate an enthusiasm for positively changing others’ lives, a capacity for innovative and strategic thinking, and demonstrated abilities to identify people’s strengths and to coach those strengths out of them.
