JOB OPENING: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HUMANITY+
Humanity+ (formerly known as the World Transhumanist Association) is
accepting applications for the position of Executive Director. The
Executive Director is responsible for managing the affairs of H+ under
the Direction of the Board of Directors, including:
* directing the work of the Assistant Director
* maintaining the website
* managing mailing lists, a newsletter, and member communications
* maintaining contact with chapters and organizing committees, and
facilitating chapter growth
* maintaining contact with affiliates around the programmatic
agenda outlined by the Board
* representing H+ and transhumanism in the media and other outlets
(such as seminars and conferences)
The position will require a commitment of approximately 15 hours per
week. Candidates must have experience with organizational management,
fundraising and administration. They must be self-starters with keen
entrepreneurial sense. Applicants must also display a working
understanding of and commitment to transhumanism, and an acceptance of
the various perspectives grouped under the transhumanist umbrella.
Candidates must also be prepared to sometimes navigate among diverse
opinions within the Board of Directors. The Executive Director will be
frequently called upon to act as a mediator and facilitator in the
efforts of moving things forward.
Preference will be given to prospects with strong written and verbal
communication skills and for those who are experienced and capable
public speakers. Fluency in English is essential, with other world
languages a plus. Candidates must be prepared to be the “public face”
Location is irrelevant as the candidate will be expected to
telecommute. The position is currently voluntary. However, there are
prospects that fundraising will enable some level of compensation in
the coming year (part of the responsibilities of the Executive
Director will be to make this happen).
It is also expected that the Executive Director will attend
conferences, seminars and other networking opportunities. The ED will
be reimbursed for these expenses.
Applications will be accepted until May 15, 2009.
A final decision will be made by May 25, 2009, and the position will
begin June 1, 2009.
