OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES FOR THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

The Professional Center’s forty-three-year commitment to eliminating barriers to growth and development for children with disabilities and families coping with health issues and challenges has been its hallmark through its years of service. Given the increasingly complex demands of families, school systems and communities, this leadership transition presents an exciting opportunity for an entrepreneurial and innovative professional to lead an established agency through a period of a changing programmatic and funding realities. The ED will need to balance external demands with a strategic growth plan that is focused on sustainability and invest in internal capacity to support the growth of services. The Board of Directors is committed to a strategic assessment of the agency’s operations and to outlining the opportunities that lay ahead together with the incoming Executive Director.

The Executive Director will be responsible for leading and managing all aspects of the agency, and, in partnership with the Board of Directors, for all strategic and capital-related obligations. To ensure operational effectiveness, the Executive Director will model and lead effective communication and collaboration across the agency so that distinct lines of operations work independently, yet synergistically.

The Executive Director’s responsibilities include:

Vision and Leadership

Working with the Board of Directors, the Executive Director (ED) will set a vision for organizational and programmatic development that brings together the different programs into a holistic narrative about the Center and its service to community. The ED will oversee systems, structures, and internal policies to support the highest level of quality and effectiveness. The ED will review current organizational opportunities and needs and help determine the direction and model for development focusing on fidelity and sustainability. The Executive Director will actively identify areas for operational improvement and utilize best practices to set strategic goals for programs. The ED will direct the effective implementation of these strategic plans ensuring that the internal capacity, systems, and policies are strong and directed at supporting children, families and front-line staff.

Finance and Administration

The Executive Director will oversee a $7 million budget and will act in a fiscally astute, disciplined and conservative manner to maintain the organization’s commitment to financial stability through sound fiscal controls and leadership, while identifying additional ways to broaden revenue streams and enhance quality of services to the children and families it serves. The ED will work actively with the Board and senior staff to lead a budgeting process that ensures accountability and program sustainability while actively encouraging creativity, entrepreneurship, and the exploration of new best practices.

Facilitate Collaboration, and Communication Across Teams

The Executive Director will identify and help to implement systems that ensure coordination, collaboration, and effective communication between programs and teams both organization-wide and at the site level. The ED will promote, facilitate, and document strategic conversations across program areas aimed at strengthening information sharing, organizational learning, and continuous improvement. The ED will also lead the development and implementation of structural as well as technological improvements for the agency to ensure best practices in communication and collaboration are institutionally supported.

Community Relations and External Partnerships

As chief spokesperson and fundraiser for the Center, the Executive Director will be expected to navigate, negotiate and maintain mutually beneficial relationships that provide long term benefits for the agency. Specifically, the ED will develop opportunities to expand the agency’s profile through broad and diverse engagement with professional associations, advocacy organizations, prospective partners, corporate and nonprofit partners, public officials, policymakers, the media and the public-at-large. The ED will serve as a compelling spokesperson, promoting the agency’s mission, programs and services throughout the immediate community and the broader region, and ensuring that the Professional Center is consistently presented in a strong, positive way to key stakeholders and the public. The Executive Director will lead all of the Professional Center’s fundraising efforts as supported by the Development Director and the Board of Directors and will develop an advancement strategy that both effectively stewards existing relationships and establishes new and deeper relationships with grant makers and individual donors.

CANDIDATE QUALIFICATIONS AND ATTRIBUTES:

The successful candidate will be an entrepreneurial and effective leader who possesses both the vision to inspire and the skills to lead an organization into its next phase of development. With a demonstrated commitment to the Professional Center’s mission and expertise in early childhood education and service delivery, the new Executive Director will be a confident, transparent and accessible leader.
