The California Native Plant Society (CNPS), a science-based organization with over 9,000 members, is seeking an Executive Director who will be a strong and articulate advocate for one of California’s most effective conservation organizations. CNPS is organized in 33 chapters across the state, a Chapter Council, a Board of Directors, numerous local and statewide committees, and volunteer and paid administrative and program staff. Volunteer leadership is an integral and vital component of our success as an organization. The Society’s members work in cooperation with county, state, and federal agencies, elected officials, NGOs, and other non-profit organizations to conserve California native plants and their natural habitats, and increase understanding, appreciation, and horticultural use of native plants. The Society’s administrative and technical staff facilitates and supports the work of the chapters and implements statewide programs.
The Society is headquartered in Sacramento. More information about CNPS is available on its website: http://www.cnps.org. Review of applications will begin March 20, 2012 (anticipated start date June 1, 2012).
