Need to look professional – clean shaven and no long hair for guys, and

dress a notch above whatever the group is dressing like.

Comfortable leading a post-event discussion in a questioning mode –

drawing out people, asking them about their experience within their team

– as opposed to telling them.

Able to take what a group says about the activity and link it back to

the group's workplace realities, or to a more general concept of how

teams interact, or projects play out from start to finish or all of the

above.

29. Executive Director; Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; Rochester, NY

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a highly regarded national voluntary

health services agency, is seeking a talented Executive Director for its

Rochester, New York operation and surrounding areas. Below are some

important facts about CFF:

* The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is adding tomorrows every day to the

lives of those with cystic fibrosis. In 1955, when the CF Foundation

was established, children with cystic fibrosis did not live to attend

elementary school. Today, thanks to wise investments made by the

Foundation in innovative research and comprehensive care, the median age

of survival for a person with cystic fibrosis is nearly 37 years.

* The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is efficient. Forbes and SmartMoney

have recognized the CF Foundation for its enterprising and efficient

approach to curing a genetic disease. In 2005, approximately 90 cents

of the revenue raised was available for investment in vital cystic

fibrosis program services.

* The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a leader in the development of

promising new drugs for cystic fibrosis. Because CF is considered an

orphan disease, most biotechnology/pharmaceutical companies are unlikely

to commit resources to develop drugs for CF without the Foundation's

efforts to reduce risk. CFF has devised an innovative business model to

ensure a commitment to drug development that is unrivaled by any other

voluntary health organization. By employing a visionary focus, the CF

Foundation has brought top-notch scientists from many disciplines and

medical institutions and corporations together under one virtual roof!

Position Description:

The Executive Director will be responsible for all aspects of

fundraising, including Special Events, Major Gifts, Corporate

Sponsorships and Planned Giving.

Requirements:

* In addition to a proven track record of successful fundraising,

with an ability to “raise the bar” annually, the Executive Director must

have excellent leadership and managerial skills, including Volunteer

recruitment and retention, Board development, previous equivalent P&L

responsibility, and a passion for operational excellence.

* The successful candidate must be strongly proactive, with superior

communication skills and an entrepreneurial spirit.

* Managerial skills are also essential, as the Executive Director will

oversee a full staff of professionals who are involved in special event

fundraising activities, major gifts, planned giving initiatives, and

volunteer recruitment/management. The chapter currently conducts a

variety of special events annually that range from CFF's Great Strides

walks, to Golf events, to major Galas, Wine Events and more.

* The Executive Director will also be principally responsible for the

cultivation of new relationships with corporate and individual

benefactors. Ample administrative, marketing and fundraising support is

provided in a highly collaborative manner to all Executive Directors by

the national headquarters organization located in Bethesda, Maryland.

This is an outstanding opportunity that offers a high degree of

visibility, opportunity for ongoing advancement, and an excellent

compensation package. Please submit resume with salary history directly
