Director of Educational Programs-Pennsylvania
Position Title: Director of Educational Programs
Hours and Compensation: Not listed.
Application Deadline: Not listed.
I am very pleased to announce that the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) is currently accepting applications for Director of Educational Programs, a staff position that will be fundamental to the future of our organization and represents a very significant career opportunity for the right candidate.
For some background, about 18 months ago the PASA Board of Directors established as our top strategic priority the reformulation and intensification of our educational programming, already nationally renowned for excellence in helping new farmers to get started and existing ones to become more sustainable in their growing and business practices. The board initiated this process knowing that, despite much progress, the challenges ahead in the agricultural community remain daunting, and will require the “best and the brightest” among us to take the lead in envisioning and establishing a more sustainable future. The job currently advertised is the symbolic capstone of that planning process.
We seek an inspired leader with wide-ranging experience to design our research agenda, curriculum and program delivery mechanisms to be as innovative and effective as any in the nation, working with the strong set of academic and other partners PASA has developed over the past 22 years. Interviews will start in the first full week of May, but our search will continue until exactly the right person has been identified.
As our members and closest friends, I hope you will do everything possible to help us get the word out about this important professional opportunity. The full position description is available on our website.
Wishing you all the best for the growing season ahead!
Brian Snyder, Executive Director
