As continue to develop a timeline and budget for launch for the CMU Checkoff, we are examining how best to staff the organization. Staffing projections can be complicated by the range of programs and approaches that will be available to the Board for consideration. It’s likely that many staff functions will initially be contracted, until the range and scope of invested programs become better defined. That said, at least one staff position will be essential.
Of critical importance to the start of investing in regional and national programs will be the hiring of a program director. While the development of the Program Director position description is still underway and will require Board approval, our current concept for the position includes:
We hope to have the position description for the program director approved at the first Board meeting and the role filled before year end. The selected candidate will need to be both imaginative and detail focused and possess good communication skills. When the position description is approved by the Board, I hope that you will consider forwarding it to anyone that you think would be a good fit for the mission.
I will keep you advised as the launch timeline develops. As always, please reach out with any questions, ideas or thoughts you may have as we continue to move forward.
