AREUEA is seeking a qualified person or persons to assume the responsibilities of Executive Director of the Association for a term beginning July 1, 2017. The Executive Director performs duties as described below and reports to the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the Association (“Executive Committee”) and the Board of Directors of the Association (the “Board”). This is a position that will be remunerated and served by an Independent Contractor to the Association. The Executive Director is appointed by the Board of Directors for a term of three (3) years and may be renewed by mutual agreement. The Executive Director, as an Independent Contractor, may work alone, or through another institution, such as a real estate center at a university.
Interested applicants should submit a short proposal (less than five pages) outlining any specific qualifications or experience, any past support for or participation in Association activities, and a projected cost estimate for fulfilling the detailed duties outlined below. While our preference is for the duties to be provided by a single person, we will seriously review any offers by independent contractors to fulfill all or parts of these duties. Our expectation is that the position will require on average no more than 40 hours per week for the period from December 15 – January 15 and for the period of time during which the coordination of the Mid-Year meeting takes place (approximately two weeks in the April/June period) and that at other times, the hours fluctuate with some weeks requiring only a few hours and other weeks up to full time. At no time during the year would we expect hours to exceed those of a full time position. Generally, we anticipate that the position would require 28 hours per week or less, on average.
