First things first: thank you, because without you the Michigan Lean Consortium (MLC) would not exist!
We have an awesome opportunity to present for this organization. We are starting our search for a new MLC President. The President of the MLC is the one who runs the day-to-day operations, works closely with the Board of Directors, collaborates with Team Leaders for all major functions within the organization, and manages other independent contractors and MLC contracts. The Board of Directors provides the direction and aim for the organization with the President carrying out the mission.
Our President’s position is that of an independent contractor, so there is built-in flexibility. The current requirement is for a part-time position with the hourly rate being negotiable; however, this position can become anything that the right person creates, as long as it aligns with our mission and supports our current and future members. In addition to having the right skillset, our President will also need to reside in our beautiful state in order to be regularly accessible to do the work of the organization.
Our President should be a self-directed leader who can grow the MLC and cultivate innovative partnerships and opportunities to expand the reach of the organization. The right person will be passionate about lean and comfortable facilitating, coaching, and leading our volunteer organization to make the MLC the leading lean organization in the Midwest.
So what do we need from you? Engage your network, pass along this announcement, or give thoughtful consideration to putting in an application if you are the right person for this opportunity.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly. My contact information can be found below.
Thank you again. We are excited for the next step in our organization’s journey.
