Founded in 2001, Community Land Trust Association of West Marin's (CLAM) mission is to strengthen communities in West Marin through the creation and stewardship of permanently affordable homes. As a Community Land Trust (CLT), CLAM takes land and housing out of the public real estate market and holds it “in trust” to serve as a long-term community asset for housing community members.

CLAM believes that affordable homes are an essential part of maintaining a diverse and thriving community. CLAM creates permanently affordable homes using the CLT model: the organization purchases property, builds or renovates homes, and then either sells or rents the homes at prices that are affordable to the residents of West Marin. In this way, CLAM acts as the long term steward of land and housing for the communities surrounding Tomales Bay. CLAM serves families and individuals with incomes that reflect wages typical of West Marin’s service and nonprofit sectors, which are on average, lower than the rest of Marin County.

Position Overview

The Executive Director (ED) provides leadership toward the development and achievement of CLAM’s mission, strategy, annual goals, and objectives. Reporting to the board, the ED will lead and manage all functional areas of the organization including finance and budget management, project management, fundraising, communications, and staff management. In this challenging economic environment, the Executive Director is expected to maintain CLAM’s key priorities and find creative and innovative ways to help the organization thrive into the future. The ED ensures CLAM’s mission is at the core of all staff functions.

Priorities and Responsibilities:

  • Develop collaborative relationships with donors, partners, and the local community by spending significant time in West Marin
  • Continually increase availability of additional affordable housing units – through new projects and stewardship of existing portfolio
  • Organizational capacity building – staffing, partnership development, and collaboration with other local affordable housing organizations
  • Explore ways to leverage new policy and funding changes at the local, state, and federal level

Collaborative leader with the ability to motivate staff and diverse constituencies. Ability to develop productive relationships with the local community, staff, partners, foundations, and governmental agencies to further CLAM’s mission.
