    The National Recycling Coalition (NRC) Board of Directors is excited to announce that it is seeking interested candidates to serve as the NRC Executive Director. As the NRC is nearing its 40th year as the national recycling network of more than 6,000 members through 23-affiliated recycling organizations, we seek a strong individual that conveys the voice of the NRC membership.

    The National Recycling Coalition is a non-profit organization that is focused on the promotion and enhancement of recycling in the United States. The organization works to maintain a prosperous and productive recycling system that is committed to the conservation of natural resources, as well as accelerate sustainable approaches to the management of discarded materials.

    During the 2016 Annual Resource Recycling Conference in New Orleans, the NRC Board of Directors adopted and presented the NRC Strategic Plan to its' membership. This plan helps to guide the NRC in accomplishing four major goals:

    • NRC is seen as the primary forum where stakeholders come together to share information and address issue of mutual concern,
    • Build stronger Recycling Organization Affiliate partnerships,
    • NRC is seen as the reasoned voice on policy issues,
    • NRC builds a sustainable/expanding membership, diverse funding and ensures its health and vitality.

    To accomplish these strategic goals, the Board of Directors desires to hire an Executive Director to represent the organization, address national recycling issues, raise the funds necessary to accomplish its mission, expand the NRC membership, and build a stronger voice through its partners.

    Are you the right person for this mission? Are you ready to be a national voice for recycling? Can you raise funds for the mission of the NRC? Can you travel on behalf of the NRC? If so, the NRC needs your service! Please review the following position announcement. 

    Although this is initially proposed as only a 6-month contract, we expect that the right candidate will enable NRC to continue and expand upon this level of commitment thereafter. Please indicate in cover letter whether you are willing to proceed if funds are not immediately available, what amount of financial risk you can take, and how and when you recommend NRC should proceed with hiring for this position.
