Chief Executive Officer
New Georgia Project (NGP), a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and New Georgia Project Action Fund, an affiliated 501(c)4 nonprofit, are nonpartisan, civic engagement organizations that believe in the inherent power of Georgians who have been ignored for too long: Black Georgians, brown Georgians, young people, LGBTQ+ folks, rural Georgians, and others who have the power to move the state forward. NGP and NGPAF are leading a state-wide, multi-racial, multigenerational, cross-class movement that works all year, every year to build a new Georgia that works for everyone.
Along with the Board of Directors, the CEO is charged with oversight and accountability for New Georgia Project and New Georgia Project Action Fund. The CEO will be an engaged leader who balances representing NGP and NGPAF externally with guiding organizational operations and programs through a talented leadership team. The new leader will ensure a strong organizational culture and advance a vision for the future that embraces the organizations’ values, regularly confronts and successfully adapts to a dynamic political landscape, and positions the organizations to realize their aspirations.
The ideal candidate is a visionary leader and capable manager with a proven ability to scale growth and bring organizational leadership and operating cohesion to an organization that has evolved rapidly. They will have an established history serving as the face of an organization, campaign, or high-profile project, leading and supporting talented operational and programmatic teams, connecting with people quickly and effortlessly, and inspiring people to action. Given the intensity of NGP’s and NGPAF’s work, the ability to bring grace, perspective, and positivity to the workplace will be important.
Superlative communication, subject matter expertise in organizing and movement work, successful fundraising experience, and the ability to connect with diverse communities are essential skills for the new leader. Knowledge of similar organizational environments and experience working in a highly collaborative, dynamic, missionbased workplace would be an asset.
