CRRA Jobs Board

  • 03 Apr 2017 1:48 PM | Lauren Meyer (Administrator)

    The California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA) is seeking candidates to serve as the association’s Executive Director. This opening is an outstanding opportunity for a dynamic individual to take the helm of California's state recycling association, and build on organizational progress achieved in the past three years. CRRA has successfully transitioned from reliance on contract conference and membership management services supported by board member volunteers, to recruitment of and investment in dedicated staff supported by a governance board. 

    CRRA's 2016 Annual Conference and Tradeshow, produced for the first time by staff, was the most successful ever.  Conferences in 2017 (San Diego) and 2018 (Oakland) are positioned for similar success.  The launch of the Zero Waste Principles and Practices professional certification course, a partnership with the Solid Waste Association of North America, will mark the start of the nation’s first professional certification program on zero waste and sustainable materials management available through an established national platform.  The Zero Waste and sustainable materials management movement has emerged as one of the most cost-effective and readily available climate protection opportunities, elevating “recycling” from a niche issue to an essential global strategy.  Zero Waste now encompasses a broad and diverse environmental portfolio including the massive effort to replace landfilling of organic materials with an unprecedented scale of composting infrastructure in California, the movement to replace systemic food waste with food rescue, the global campaign to stem plastic pollution of the oceans, product stewardship and product bans.

    CRRA members are mission-driven, enthusiastic recycling, composting and sustainable materials professionals who work for a variety of California public agencies and private companies. A significant number of CRRA members are mid-level managers and directors, many whom are poised to become senior agency decisionmakers and private sector leaders over the next decade. Members of CRRA draw significant value from the networking and professional development opportunities CRRA provides, particularly though the content-rich annual conference.

    Recent landmark legislation in Sacramento promises an escalation of large-scale systemic change in the ways California municipalities and businesses manage discards, setting the table for CRRA's growth.  The CRRA board of directors looks forward to placing a new leader at the center of this dynamic environment.

    The Executive Director is primarily responsible for the effective and accountable functioning of CRRA consistent with Board-adopted strategic plan. The plan requires the Executive Director to coordinate and apply CRRA staff, volunteer and financial resources to meet Board- adopted  goals in 1) membership development and services, 2) public policy advocacy, 3) strategic partnerships and, 4) organizational excellence.
