They will be eager to think outside the boxes and traps of the nonprofit world and work as a partner with the Board and member-leaders to experiment to create powerful new models of success that combine the reliability of paid staff with the scalability and true power of member-led organizing.

The Executive Director will work with the Board and member leaders to achieve Reclaim’s mission, conducting day-to-day operations efficiently, developing and evaluating programs, overseeing campaigns, managing personnel, and leading fundraising efforts. More specifically, the Executive Director will:

Program and Operations: 

  • Work with the Board and members to build the infrastructure of the organization, ensuring systems, processes, and work plans across the organization are aligned with Reclaim’s vision and current priorities and that day-to-day operations are set up for maximum impact.

  • Perform day-to-day operational and programmatic duties and tasks related to the continued functioning and success of Reclaim, including but not limited to meeting with member leaders, planning trainings, developing field plans, etc.
