The National Eagle Center currently has an opening for the following positions:
The National Eagle Center, America’s leading organization dedicated to the unique role of eagles in our natural environment and human cultures, seeks a dynamic, visionary executive for the position of Executive Director. The organization’s current director will be retiring at year-end after a successful seven year stewardship resulting in annual attendance reaching 80,000 visitors from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. The position will be responsible for broadening our mission and directing a major expansion of our magnificent riverfront facility along with ongoing strategic and operational aspects of this highly-respected organization. With our strong record of operational performance and more than $10 million already pledged toward our $18 million expansion fundraising goal, this is an ideal opportunity to guide an already successful organization to even higher levels of success and national significance.
