Call for Interest: Community Development Society Executive Leadership Fellow

Priority Consideration Deadline Extended to January 31st, 2020

The Community Development Society (CDS) seeks to support a part-time Executive Leadership Fellow for 2020-2022 who will provide fiduciary duty, membership recruitment and outreach, advocacy and coordination of research specific to its mission. The ideal candidate will possess leadership experience in the field of community development, demonstrated ability to manage organizations, national level advocacy skills, and a practice and/or research agenda aligned with the CDS Principles of Good Practice and the CDS mission. A terminal degree (PhD, JD, Masters) is preferred.

The CDS Board of Directors intend to transition the organization from a largely volunteer based organization to one supported by dedicated staff. The fellow will serve in the capacity of Executive Director and assist the board in this transition through recruiting members, sustaining and promoting membership, leading development efforts, supporting financial management, facilitating board governance, and coordinating and/or conducting research.

The fellow will serve a 2-year appointment (with an optional third year depending on available funding) and will be located remotely. However, the selected individual will need to establish a mailing address to receive CDS correspondence, use a mobile phone to access the CDS toll-free number, and able to regularly access the internet.  The fellow will receive a stipend of $4,000 per month, a WiFi enabled laptop with MS Office installed, and an allowance for travel to the CDS annual meeting and international conference and up to three additional related conferences annually with approval by the CDS Executive Committee. The fellow will report to the CDS Board Executive Committee with the Vice Chair of Operations providing direct supervision. The fellowship will remain open until the appointment is made. Therefore, qualifications should be submitted no later than January 31st, 2020 for full consideration.
