MANP Announces Search for Next Director of Advocacy
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. (Lao Tzu)”
Fully embracing life as constant change, MANP’s advocacy program will be undergoing a transition in early 2019. Our Director of Advocacy and PR, Jenn Burns Gray, who has been leading the organization’s advocacy efforts with great skill and professionalism, will be leaving MANP in late January to become the executive director of Arts Are Elementary in Brunswick.
We are sorry to see her go and very grateful for her dedication to Maine’s nonprofit sector these last two years. Under Jenn’s leadership, MANP has continued to build a committed network of nonprofits across the state that are working together to strengthen Maine’s nonprofit sector. She has also deftly stewarded the issues we share across our diverse sector in Augusta and Washington D.C. Thanks to her hard work we can look forward to building upon a promising foundation with her successor.
The search for MANP’s next Director of Advocacy is open through January 25. More details are available on the MANP Job Board. This position includes a job-share arrangement with the Maine Philanthropy Center (MPC) to manage MPC’s advocacy initiatives and coordinate MPC’s and MANP’s advocacy efforts. We welcome help from our community in sharing this news and helping us identify the ideal candidate for this important role in support of Maine nonprofits.
