The candidate must be a current AAWD member in good standing, team builder, and collaborator, with the ability to lead the organization into its next phase of growth, exemplary service, and policy leadership.
Candidates should demonstrate the ability to deepen leadership capacity, and to both create and sustain partnerships with a broad diverse range of national and state programs and services, including funding and fundraising for the organization. The ability to work with business and service organizations such as AAWD's Smiles for Success Foundation is an added plus. Prior leadership experience in national, state, or regional dental organizations is desired. The candidate should be able to demonstrate organizational and communication skills. The use of electronic communication and Web-based services is essential. Time commitments vary by position, with a minimum of 10 hours a month for trustee positions and 10 hours a week for most national offices.
