Member Association Job Openings

Many board members have never had to face the daunting, time-consuming process involved in MA Staff transition. Hiring can represent a fresh opportunity for the board and MA Staff to clarify roles, set expectations, and build the trust and respect that are central to effective nonprofit governance. WEF now offers to MAs the opportunity to post MA Professional Staff position openings on the WEF Job Openings site on at no cost to the MA. The postings are listed strictly as a courtesy to WEF Member Associations for recruitment of their MA professional staff positions. The MA would be required to have a valid link on their website and must advise WEF when the link on should be removed as the position becomes filled. For more information contact
