WANTED: Executive Director for neighborhood revitalization non-profit (Washington, DC)

In Washington, DC, Uptown Main Street, an officially designated DC Main Streets District, is seeking a full-time Executive Director.

Uptown DC engages in small business retention and recruitment activities, provides small business technical assistance, works on promotional and marketing activities, engages in public space design, and management issues, among many other activities. Under direction of the Board of Directors (board) this individual will be responsible for the management, coordination, documentation, and implementation of the Main Street revitalization program, following the National Main Street Center’s Four-Point approach.

Are you looking for a fulfilling opportunity to apply your skills, expertise and passions to directly impact a unique community in DC? Do you thrive in a diverse environment where you are responsible for building relationships with a wide variety of people? Are you energized by community outreach and public speaking? Are you a flexible leader willing to roll up your sleeves and work on the details while keeping your eye on the big picture? Are you seeking a career where each day is different from the last?

If you answered yes to those questions, we’d love to hear from you! We’re looking for a collaborative leader to support hyper-local revitalization efforts along our commercial corridor, comprising Upper 14th Street NW and Kennedy Street NW in Washington, DC.

Uptown Main was founded in the fall of 2017 and brought on its first Executive Director in February 2018. We’ve had a very successful first year and are on our way to a successful second year. While we’re sad to lose our current Executive Director to the west coast, we’re excited to have our new hire and our current staff member overlap for a month so you can learn the ropes!

To apply, please send a single PDF containing your cover letter, resume, and a short writing sample to info@uptownmainstreet.org. Please include ‘Main Street Executive Director Position’ in the subject line.

Start date: June 1, 2019
