The St. Croix International Waterway Commission is seeking an energetic, diplomatic leader. As Executive Director of the SCIWC, youll exercise your knowledge of government and non-profit funding to build a stable and growing financial base. With your excellent communication and facilitation skills, youll help people and organizations work together across an international border on sometimes complex and contentious issues. The diverse mandate of the SCIWC means youll need to use your organization and time management skills to ensure that you and other seasonal staff members function efficiently and effectively, delivering high quality programs. Youll need to know how to make the most of a budget, complete project on time, and how to work with other organizations and non-profits to find new solutions to challenges.

Youll be guided by the Commissioners, as well as the SCIWCs strategic plan and the international management plan for the waterway.
Our ideal candidate will have strong education and experience in an environmental, recreation or scientific field relevant to managing a waterway, as well as management experience, preferably in a non-profit organization. Youve the opportunity to lead projects from start to finish, and youve been responsible for supervising and guiding staff. It is essential that you have the ability and experience to communicate well, and with diplomacy, both orally and in writing. You like working in an organization where your tasks are diverse and you can connect your daily work to larger, long-term strategic goals.

The St. Croix International Waterway Commission is an international, non-profit partnership that protects and enhances the health, heritage and beauty of the shared St. Croix waterway.
