TAILS Humane Society

TAILS Humane Society in DeKalb IL seeks an Executive Director to provide dynamic leadership for a small not-for-profit humane society and animal shelter, preferably a candidate with experience in animal welfare.  TAILS operates an up-to-date animal shelter and offers foster care, adoption, low-cost spay-neuter, and programs that support the human-animal bond.  These include HomeBuddies, which supports animals in the homes of shut-ins served by Meals on Wheels; Catalyst, which trains at-risk youth to improve their coping skills by working with animals, and PAWSitive TAILS, a program that trains and certifies handlers and their animals for work in nursing homes and other locations.

TAILS places 2,300 animals annually, facilitating adoptions both at the shelter and through a variety of off-site adoption locations.    TAILS has a well-established history of collaboration and partnership with other animal welfare organizations and with human service organizations.  TAILS raises approximately 60% of its revenue from services and the rest from private gifts and foundation grants.  It receives no government funding.

TAILS was founded in 2000 by a small group of citizens who wanted to improve the quality of care and placement of homeless animals in the DeKalb and Sycamore area.  The organization constructed a 6,100 square foot shelter in 2005.  In 2010 a second building was added to its campus, donated by a local citizen in a public-private partnership.  The donor uses the space during the day to operate a for-profit dog daycare service; in the evening and on weekends, TAILS uses the building for dog training and other programming.  A well-equipped veterinary clinic is located in this building.

TAILS has a small, well-trained professional staff and approximately 500 active volunteers who provide foster care and assist staff with shelter animal care, adoptions,  and fundraising events.

The shelter is located in DeKalb IL, sixty miles west of Chicago.  DeKalb and its sister community, Sycamore, have a combined population of 61,500.  They are located in DeKalb County, which has a population of 104,700. DeKalb is the home of Northern Illinois University, and its students increase the population of the community and also the number of available volunteers during the school year.  Although the primary clientele for TAILS is DeKalb County, adopters come from the western suburbs and communities to the west and south of DeKalb.  The off-site adoption program extends TAILS‘  reach into the western suburbs of Chicago.

Further information about TAILS and its programs can be found at our website:  http://www.tailshumanesociety.org.  Review of applications will begin on June 1 and continue until the position is filled.  TAILS Humane Society is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Vice President, Communications

May 11, 2014 02:18 pm |

Company:
National Association of Charter School Authorizers

The Vice President, Communications will lead and manage all communications functions at the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA). This leader will infuse NACSA’s communications with creativity and strategy in order to help the organization advance and achieve its mission and strategic goals.

The Organization

Founded in 2000, the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit and the leading organization dedicated to improving public education through excellence in charter school authorizing. NACSA works to strengthen the people, policies and practices of authorizers – the organizations designated to approve, monitor, renew and, if necessary, close charter schools. NACSA provides training, professional development, practical resources, consulting and policy guidance to authorizers. It also advocates for laws and policies that raise the bar for excellence among authorizers and the schools they charter. Above all, NACSA is committed to advancing excellence and accountability in the charter sector and to increasing the number of high-quality charter schools across the nation.

In November 2012 NACSA launched its five-year One Million Lives campaign, dedicated to providing one million more children the chance to attend a great school that will prepare them for success throughout their lives. The campaign recognizes that simply increasing the overall number of charter schools isn’t the answer. By engaging authorizers and a broad coalition to close failing charter schools and open many more good ones, we can get one million more children into 3,000 high-performing schools within five years.

Role and Major Responsibilities

The Vice President, Communications will:

  • Set vision and direction for the organization’s communications functions;
  • Design and execute on a strategic communications plan;
  • Identify opportunities to use communications to advance the One Million Lives campaign;
  • Ensure that key messages reach core audiences;
  • Ensure that key messages are being delivered through the right person or communications tactic;
  • Write various communications documents including press releases, speeches, stakeholder letters and op-eds;
  • Build relationships with and secure news placements on behalf of NACSA;
  • Oversee and manage all of the division’s responsibilities including strategic communications, media and press releases, marketing of programs and services, design and dissemination of publications and oversight of social media functions;
  • Build and manage a dynamic team around the concept of strengths-based management in order to achieve priorities and goals; and
  • Work closely and collaboratively with NACSA colleagues and partners to communicate NACSA’s overall mission and vision.

S/he will report to the President & CEO.
