The Role: EFMN seeks an Executive Director (ED) to grow its impact on the community and drive its mission. The ED provides strategic direction and leadership for the organization, develops and builds deep relationships with donors, conducts outreach to current and prospective project partners, stakeholders and the community, and serves as the primary representative for state advocacy. Responsible for EFMN’s financial and operational management, the ED leads local and statewide alliance-building and promotion to build and secure a sustained financial base for organization.
