The Litchfield Housing Trust has begun a search for its first executive director. The Trust, a volunteer-run, nonprofit affordable housing organization based in Litchfield, CT, has provided affordable housing in the Litchfield area for 28 years.
The mission of the Trust is to provide housing that will help make Litchfield affordable to a diverse population so that people who work in the town can live in the town and so that families, young and old, will not have to leave the town to find affordable housing.
The Trust’s board of trustees decided to establish the position of executive director because the tasks of administering the Trust’s programs, leading new project development, and executing its strategic plan had become too complex for the volunteer-led organization.
The position of executive director will be part-time with a flexible work schedule of approximately 20 hours per week. Among other qualifications, the person chosen for the position will relate exceptionally well to others and will have strong management and public speaking skills. In addition, he or she must convey the mission of the Trust to its varied stakeholders, and, equally important, consistently convey his or her own passion for the accomplishment of that mission. Finally, the executive director will be knowledgeable of fundraising strategies and donor relations unique to the non-profit sector.
