As Executive Director of a nonprofit organization, you are the Chief Mission Officer. You can envision a future in which your organization is meeting the needs of the community, yet at the same time you have a keen sense of the pragmatic. This balance of passion and pragmatism makes you key in both creating and executing the strategies to make that future a reality.
As Executive Director, you also have to deal with day-to-day operations and the details of maintaining a going concern. While the board is keeper of the mission, every challenge to the mission comes across your desk. From fundraising to human resources to finance to orienting new board members, you are involved.
As Executive Director, you may need to engage outside services to support your work, or to support the work of the board.
