S U M M A R Y
We’re searching for a dynamic and experienced non-profit leader with a passion for our work and a strong administrative skill-set to advance our vision for organizational growth and excellence at a critical time for conservation in California. A competitive candidate will bring a track record of exemplary management of people and resources, including strengths in development, outreach, non-profit finance, human resources, and organizational policy and culture. The Executive Director will have the opportunity to build on a 30-year legacy of land conservation across a 6,000 square mile region of the North State, stretching from the foothills of the Coastal Range in the west to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Range in the east. Nestled in the heart of this service area is some of the most fertile and productive agricultural land in the nation, and protecting and sustaining local food production is an important part of the organization’s identity.
