NGWA seeks a collaborative, forward-thinking chief executive officer to lead the organization in partnership with the board of directors.
NGWA is a hybrid international trade association and scientific professional society working together to advance groundwater knowledge and the success of members through education and outreach; advocacy; cooperation and information exchange; and enhancement of professional practices.
NGWA’s vision is to be the leading groundwater association advocating the responsible development, management, and use of water. NGWA also operates a charitable foundation, the NGWA Foundation, focused on education, research, and charitable activities related to a broader public understanding of groundwater.
Kevin McCray, CAE, the current CEO, will retire at the end of 2017. The next CEO must be a talented leader who recognizes successes of the past and charts a course for future impact and growth.
NGWA has four membership sections—water well system professionals, scientists and engineers, manufacturers, and suppliers. The national board has 19 voting members and each membership section has an oversight board. The CEO manages a staff of 29 and a budget of $5.5 million, and serves roughly 10,500 members.
The ideal candidate will be a seasoned executive leader with a strong track record of successfully leading and developing teams, working with an engaged board, diversifying revenue streams, leading strategic planning, and cultivating relationships with a wide spectrum of stakeholders, vendors, and partners.
NGWA has retained Nancy Rummel of Nancy Rummel & Associates to assist in this search. Candidates should submit a letter of interest with salary requirement and resume to Nancy@nancyrummel.com. Deadline for application is March 31.
