The George Washington Regional Commission (GWRC), based in Fredericksburg, Virginia, is seeking an experienced professional to serve as Executive Director responsible for directing staff, programs, and operations of the Commission.
GWRC is responsible for encouraging and facilitating local government cooperation in addressing, on a regional basis, problems of greater than local significance, and provides a broad array of planning and support services for the benefit of the 372,000 residents of Planning District 16. Current areas of focus include regional economic development, environmental services, human services (including homeless services support), affordable housing, transportation demand management (including rideshare matching and vanpool support for commuters), rural and urban transportation planning, and regional special project coordination. GWRC is either solely responsible or provides staff support to sister agencies in fulfilling important regional activities.
GWRC is governed by a ten-member board consisting of two elected officials appointed by the governing body of the city and each county. The Commissioners serve a term that is coincident with their elected term of office. The Commission has fifteen full-time employees and one part-time position. It has an annual budget of $9 million, of which approximately $6 million is pass- through funding.
Qualified candidates are encouraged to submit a cover letter and resume, with salary expectations and professional references, to The Berkley Group via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. While the position is open until filled, the formal review of applicants will begin August 27, 2021. Inquiries relating to the Executive Director position may be directed to:
