As summer winds down and the air starts to cool, it is again a season for change. After 6 wonderful years with Marys River Watershed Council, I am stepping out of my Executive Director’s role. I will be taking a mini-sabbatical, then looking for a different role to play in the community. I expect to remain engaged with Marys River Watershed Council in some form, as we develop plans for a volunteer-based water quality monitoring program and extend our reach beyond the “Model” watershed area in Greasy, Beaver, Woods and Shotpouch creeks.
The Marys River Watershed Council board has a clear transition plan, designed to bring a new Executive Director into the Council prior to my departure in early November.
We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic person with a passion for restoration and community engagement, who has the problem-solving and collaboration skills to take local partnerships to the next level. The board is seeking a team player, who is a strategic thinker and has a good sense of humor. Though the position is primarily office-based, Council projects and activities require periodic outdoor/field work and local travel. The work week includes occasional evenings and weekends for Board meetings, Quarterly Forums, partner meetings and other special events. You can find the full announcement here.
I hope to see many of you at our Annual Meeting and Celebration at Harris Bridge Vineyard on Sunday, September 13th!
