The Social Enterprise Alliance (SEA) is North America's leading social enterprise membership association with more than 500 organizations, grant-makers and technical assistance providers. Its members share a commitment to the practice of social enterprise – using business and market-based approaches to achieve social objectives.

SEA seeks a new President and Chief Executive Officer with the skills to take the organization to the next levels of growth and impact, and one who can be a passionate spokesperson and visionary leader for the field. The President will lead a small, dedicated, staff supporting the membership and building the field of social enterprise. She or he will be supported by an active board of directors comprised of leaders in the field. She or he will be responsible for leading strategic planning, developing enterprise opportunities for SEA and maintaining a membership focus.

The successful candidate is expected to be based either in Washington, D.C. or a major metro area with a vibrant social enterprise community. The position requires considerable travel.

The position is now open. SEA is presently being led by one of its founding members, now acting as Interim President, and the transition of leadership will be professional and well managed. The search will remain open until an excellent candidate is found. The board's intention is to review resumes in March and start interviewing by April.
