      FT  Regular

      Job Description:
      The Tuolumne River Trust (www.tuolumne.org) promotes the stewardship of the
      Tuolumne River and its tributaries to ensure a healthy watershed, from
      Yosemite National Park to the San Joaquin River in Central California and
      involving the Bay Area communities that import Tuolumne water.

      This is a great opportunity to take a successful and growing organization to
      the next level. The Trust has 2000 members, a half million dollar core
      budget, 5 full time employees and some part time employees and consultants.
      The Trust serves a diverse geographic area (the Sierra Nevada and foothill
      regions, Central Valley, and San Francisco Bay Area) and constituency
      (rural, urban, and suburban communities).

      Job activities and responsibilities will include:
      1. Fund development, marketing and communications.
      2. Supervising 4 full time staff and consultants to deliver strong programs
      furthering our mission, specifically with respect to watershed protection
      and stewardship.
      3. Facilitating sound administrative and fiscal management.
      4. Creating a vision and implementing a strategic plan to enable the Trust
      to be a long-term steward of the Tuolumne River and its tributaries.
      5. Developing the Board of Directors and Advisors in concert with existing
      directors and advisors.
      6. Representing the Trust to the public, media, and government and
      developing productive partnerships.

      Qualifications include:
      1. Degree in environmental studies or science, political science, or related
      field, MA/MS or other relevant graduate degree preferred
      2. Must possess a minimum of five years relevant work experience in the
      non-profit field, including management, fund development, marketing,
      communication, and advocacy.
      3. Prior experience and ability in building relationships and working with
      people from different backgrounds and perspectives, including media and
      4. Excellent written and oral communication skills, as well as basic
      computer skills.
      5. Commitment to the environment.

      The Trust has offices in San Francisco, Modesto, and Sonora. The Executive
      Director may locate in one of these three offices, preferably San Francisco.
      The position requires regular travel to the other two offices with
      occasional travel to Sacramento and other places in the state.

      Organizational Background
      Founded in 1981, the Trust is the only organization working on the entire
      Tuolumne River, linking Sierra and Valley conservation issues and forging
      strong ties between rural mountain and valley regions and Bay Area urban
      communities. The Trust has a long record of success. We won Wild and Scenic
      status for 83 miles of the Tuolumne River in 1984 and defeated a proposed
      hydroelectric dam on the Clavey River in the mid-1990s. Current programs
      include: a) on-the-ground restoration of fisheries and riparian habitat
      along the Tuolumne near Modesto, b) seeking Federal Wild and Scenic River
      designation of the Clavey River, c) leading a collaborative Clavey watershed
      analysis and d) opposing increased Tuolumne withdrawals by promoting
      environmentally sustainable water use by the San Francisco Public Utilities
      Commission, which is implementing a multi-billion dollar water system
      upgrade. We work through public education, multi-agency cooperative
      programs, grassroots
      organizing, and litigation when necessary.

      How to Apply:
      Salary is competitive and depends on experience (around $65,000). Excellent
      benefits. The Trust is an equal opportunity employer, committed to a diverse
      staff.  Position is available December 5, 2005.  Interviews will be held in
      mid-October.  Please submit an application letter, a resume, 2-page writing
      sample, and three references to christina@... with subject line
      “Executive Director Application.” No phone calls please. No response will be
      given until the end of the application period, which is October 9.
