    • Build stronger Recycling Organization Affiliate partnerships,

    • 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.

    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.
