At this exciting crossroads, we are seeking a candidate who is a motivated change maker to lead our efforts on increasing unrestricted revenues to enable us to continue to broaden our constituency for greater impact on the ground. We are looking for someone who believes in the Alliance’s mission, and values of inclusivity and collaboration, and will demonstrate an exceptional drive to further our existing efforts, nurture and build relationships, and help strategize and deliver new ones.


This full-time position serves a critical role in the implementation of the Alliance’s Development Plan and meeting the organization’s Strategic Plan Priority to Ensure Organizational Sustainability for the Next 50 Years.

The successful candidate demonstrates leadership qualities when working with passionate and diverse constituents, with strong motivation to grow unrestricted revenue streams to fund our mission of bringing together communities, companies, and conservationists. This position provides an opportunity to grow alongside an enthusiastic, passionate, and committed Alliance team that is making lasting change for the 18 million people who live, work, and play in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
