    Full time Executive Director position opening - Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan

    Closing date: March 3, 2017

    Do you like to face challenges and make decisions on your own? When you identify a goal is your first instinct to start now? Do you think outside the box and perform best when you can challenge the status quo and control resources to make good things happen? Do you find it exciting to meet new people? Do you find it invigorating to lead a team and to develop and motivate others? Do you have a vision of a successful non-profit organization?

    If you answered yes to the questions above, we want you as our Executive Director!


    Our Executive Director is the face of the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan (DSAWM), advocates for our members, provides strategic direction, fully engages the board, leads fundraising efforts, and oversees daily operations to fulfill our mission. We need a leader with high energy to maintain and build relationships with members, donors, local and national organization, our staff, and the board. Our new Executive Director will start learning on Day One about members’ needs and relentlessly pursue our goals.


I want to tell you what WONDERFUL time I had at the conference. I learned so much and came away with lots of ideas for our organization. -Barb Waddle, The Upside of Downs of Northeast Ohio
