AISES Opening (opportunity)



Calling all AISES Family and Friends: WDYK?

By Marie Thames, Interim CEO

Now that I have your attention: Who Do You Know?

Over the past several months, the AISES CEO Search Committee has spent many hours in a variety of activities related to recruiting a new CEO for AISES.  Every avenue imaginable has been used to identify qualified candidates, but the Board of Directors and I remain convinced that it's through personal networking as well as formal advertising and outreach that will bring the candidate we seek to AISES.

AISES is a vibrant, 36 year old nonprofit association whose mission is to substantially increase the representation of American Indians and Alaskan Natives in engineering, science, and other related technology disciplines. As such, the candidates we seek should have the following experience, qualifications and education:

  • proven accomplishments in organizational leadership
  • knowledge of the nonprofit sector
  • expertise in organizational management
  • working knowledge of the STEM fields
  • extensive understanding of, and experience with, Native American cultures, traditions and communities
  • excellent communication and managerial skills
  • demonstrated success with fundraising and/or grant writing
  • strong experience with budget development and control
  • the ability to travel frequently
  • a minimum of a Master's Degree
