Help wanted: Next Century Cities, Executive Director

Deb Socia has left some big shoes to fill but this is a great opportunity for someone to have an impact and not at all secretly I’d love to see that person come from MN become ED of Next Century Cities. (Although it is based in DC.)

The Executive Director’s primary responsibility will be the development and strategic leadership of the Next-Century Cities project, with a key focus on building and coordinating the project’s 21st Century Leadership Forum of elected officials and other city leaders.

Essential Responsibilities and Tasks

  • Set and execute the overall strategy for the project
  • Recruit mayors and other elected officials to become members of Next Century Cities
  • Help conceptualize and coordinate key projects, including city-to-city learning, policymaker education, resource creation and curation, and demonstration projects
  • Lead the media strategy, including identifying and executing press opportunities
  • Liaise with and continue the conversation among elected leaders
  • Lead day-to-day operations of the project
  • Lead fundraising

Good luck!
