Our Mission:

The New Economy Coalition (NEC) is a network of organizations imagining and building a future where people, communities, and ecosystems thrive. Together, we are creating deep change in our economy and politics—placing power in the hands of people and uprooting legacies of harm—so that a fundamentally new system can take root.

Our network advances change in three main ways:

  1. We convene and connect leaders to tackle common challenges in their work to build a new economy.
  2. We amplify stories, tools, and analysis, weaving a collective new economy narrative that can build shared identity, shift culture and policy, and promote a clear vision of the next system.
  3. We lift up the work of communities on the frontlines of interrelated economic and ecological crises who are organizing for transformative change, through right relationships and direct support.

Dear NEC members and supporters:
 
NEC has just launched a search for the New Economy Coalition’s next Executive Director. Over the last few months, the NEC staff and board have been working with Third Sector New England to assess our organizational strengths and weaknesses, identify our leadership needs, and plan the transition. 
 
Below is the job abstract, which includes an overview of the position in addition to a summary of our organizational assessment. In short, we are looking for leadership that will build, inspire, and manage a talented staff team and a vibrant coalition; keep the board strong and engaged; be a primary public face of the organization; further develop strong and innovative fundraising capacity; and build collaborative relationships with the donor community and other stakeholders.  
 
We are asking for the help of NEC's supporters, with your immense movement knowledge and networks, to help us spread the word. The complete position and contact information for interested candidates may be found at http://tsne.org/executive-director-new-economy-coalitionWe also encourage you to reach out directly with questions or suggestions of potential candidates or sources to our lead transition consultant Jeremy Phillips at jeremy.kp@jeremyphillipsconsulting.org.
 
Thank you in advance for your help. This is such an exciting moment for our network.  We appreciate your patience and support as NEC transitions to its next phase of leadership. 
 
Best regards,
Aaron Tanka and Leah Hunt Hendrix
