This is an important moment for the community of marketing, advertising and communications professionals in Philadelphia. We are an industry amid ongoing and rapid change, as each segment looks to position itself to identify opportunities and anticipate challenges to continued growth.
Appropriately, the Philadelphia Ad Club is in the process of its own reimagining and rebuilding to ensure that it will continue to be a driving and uniting force for its community throughout these heady times. It is within this confluence of serving the existing greater Philadelphia ad community within a time of change and opportunity that the Club is seeking an Executive Director. The Executive Director will engage with the Executive Committee to the Board and the Operating Board of Directors to develop a strategic path for navigation towards renewed and continued success.
In this role the chosen candidate will work effectively with internal and external stakeholders on the day-to-day management of the Philadelphia Ad Club. This is a highly strategic and facilitative role that requires a combination of focus and flexibility, as well as a willingness to go beyond existing paradigms to identify creative approaches to key Club concerns, including: membership, programming and events, fundraising and community building.
This role requires high emotional intelligence, self-motivation, collaboration and attention to detail. Experience in working with multiple constituencies and the ability to encourage and achieve consensus is critical.
