Mass Audubon. |
|Job Type:||Full Time|
|Experience Required:||4-5 years|
|State/Province:||MA - Massachusetts|
Mass Audubon works to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. We are the largest conservation organization in New England, with a $20M+ operating budget and a $100M endowment, and together with more than 100,000 members, we care for nearly 35,000 acres of conservation land; provide school, camp, and other educational programs for 225,000 children and adults annually; and advocate for sound environmental policies at local, state, and federal levels. Our statewide network of wildlife sanctuaries annually welcomes nearly half a million visitors of all ages and is committed to engaging new audiences – people from all backgrounds, of all abilities, and in all regions of the state.
Mass Audubon's ambitious conservation mission is grounded in its history. Our founding in 1896 grew out of a grassroots effort to ensure the legal protection of birds being slaughtered for the millinery trade. Since then we have extended our reach and deepened our impact on key environmental issues across the Commonwealth and have gained respect and recognition for our science, legislative leadership, and innovative educational approaches to connecting people and nature. We are proud of the work that we have done, but we know there is much more to do; we feel the urgency and importance of our work as never before; and we will carry out our mission with tenacity and conviction, guided by the four goals of our Strategic Plan – to Connect People and Nature, to Protect and Steward Massachusetts’ Habitats, to Respond to Climate Change, and to Build Capacity so that we can continue to lead by example as one of the top conservation organizations in the United States.

The President will build on Mass Audubon's rich history and pre-eminent position of environmental leadership by inspiring its community and stakeholders (Board of Directors, Council, state-wide staff, volunteers and members) with a vision and fresh perspective that will continue to broaden its audiences and deepen its impact.
By personally engaging with donors and policy-makers, the President will raise awareness and attract significant resources and support for Mass Audubon’s programs across the Commonwealth. Internally, the President will leverage the exemplary management that has secured Mass Audubon's sound financial position today, continuing to align strategic and operational business plans, specific objectives, and the financial and team resources required to deliver on its important mission well into the future.
This is an outstanding opportunity for a leader who is ambitious and visionary at a strategic level as well as seasoned managerially. The President must bring demonstrated experience in developing strategy and inspiring a diverse team of accomplished leaders - in the sciences, land management, advocacy, education, etc. - to coalesce on a shared vision across a complex, multi-site organization while also galvanizing the support of passionate volunteers and donors.
