Moderation Management (MM) Seeks a Full-Time Executive Director (ED)
Background

MM (http://www.moderation.org) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that helps people reduce harm associated with drinking.
A recent NIAAA study (http://archpsyc.jamanetwork.com/arti...icleid=2300494)
showed alcohol use disorder affected nearly 14% of its large US adult sample. A recent CDC study showed only 10% of people with AUD needed treatment. Recent media coverage raised public awareness, yielding rapid growth.

MM faces a number of challenges, however. It has survived on revenue below $25,000 per year since it was founded over 20 years ago. It remains a relatively flat organization, which will need greater structure to support the rapid growth we expect, as more people find out about MM and tell their friends and family.

There are tough questions, like whether to expand the model to areas of excess beyond alcohol (e.g., overeating, gambling, sex). Some concerns are more legal, while others are practical (let’s get alcohol support looking like we want it first). But to the extent that recruiting the right leader depends on these issues, we are leaving this one for respondents to address in their applications.

Required Qualifications

First and foremost, the ED must articulate a clear vision of MM’s future.

The ED must be willing to work for little or no money -- $12,000/year for the first year. Fundraising must increase at least 20% per year for the first five years. The ED salary will increase by 35% of the amount of the % fundraising increase over the prior year, up to $100,000/year total.

The ED must be able to motivate people to work for little or no money.

Any outside funds the ED brings to execute his/her mission must not compromise the integrity of MM with professional and academic communities (e.g., accepting grants from producers of alcoholic beverages).

The ED must pass a credit and background check. Permission for MM to run these checks is a requirement of applying for the position.

The ED may be split between two people (e.g., more experienced person overseeing a less experienced intern); both must pass credit and background checks, and the salary limits apply, to be split as spelled out by the applicants.

* College degree, preferably in related field like psychology, sociology, etc.
