Website Yakima Valley Museum
The Executive Director (ED) of the YVM must be a strategic and practical leader. As the face of the organization, the ED will further elevate the museum as a major cultural and educational resource and tourist destination for the Yakima Valley and Central Washington. Reporting to the board of trustees, the ED will have day-to-day oversight of all museum operations, using widely-held museum best practices in the care and stewardship of collections and in all matters related to board governance and financial management. The ED will also maintain a high professional profile in the community and personally cultivate financial resources while educating, engaging, and energizing the board of trustees in its role as fundraisers, policymakers, and community ambassadors. This individual will build a culture of teamwork, open communication, learning, and community impact and will show respect for and commitment to the history, culture, diversity, and traditions of the Yakima Valley as well as its future.
