Founded in 1968 by concerned Oregonians across the state, the Oregon Environmental Council (OEC) is a membership-based, nonpartisan nonprofit. OEC is the first multi-issue, statewide environmental group in Oregon.

Look at any “green” idea that put Oregon on the map over the last 50 years—the Bottle Bill, landmark land-use planning laws, curbside recycling—and you’ll find that OEC was integrally involved as a key collaborator behind these critical protections. OEC advocates for impactful, lasting solutions that get at the source of Oregon’s environmental challenges and have tangible benefits for people’s health and quality of life.

Position Overview

OEC seeks an engaged, outward-facing Executive Director who is committed to policy change and skilled in fundraising, change management, organizational development, communication, program development and implementation, and community activation. The new Executive Director will be deeply committed and authentically connected to the mission of OEC.

Profile of the Successful Candidate:

Oregon Environmental Council seeks a seasoned leader with superb communication and presentation skills, along with an effective, collaborative interpersonal manner that fosters an ability to build trust. Under the guidance of OEC’s statewide Board of Directors, the Executive Director will be responsible for actively managing all affairs and operations of the organization within the limits established by OEC’s bylaws and policies, in concordance with OEC’s emerging strategic plan.

Primary responsibilities include organizational management, including working with the Board of Directors and maintaining a transparent, empowering, inclusive team culture; ensuring fiscal accountability and financial health and stability, including raising funds from major donors, foundations and corporations; cultivating and maintaining key relationships and increasing OEC’s visibility; and providing vision and direction for OEC’s programs.

The successful candidate will be a strategically-minded leader and a thoughtful, persuasive, influential communicator who will contribute creative, dynamic, and forwardthinking strategy and execution to lead OEC’s work in pursuit of its mission to advance innovative, collaborative and equitable solutions to Oregon’s environmental challenges for today and future generations.
