CFTT Searching for New CEO

CFTT Searching for New CEO

The Board of Directors of the Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers (CFTT) announced they are beginning the search process for the CFTT’s first full-time paid CEO. Bill Ransom, Board Chair stated, “This is a major step for the CFTT. It has been operating since its beginning in 2002 with volunteer staff and now has grown to the point where it is incumbent on its continued success that the organization invest in paid staff. As we begin our search to fill this important position the Board is very excited by this opportunity.”

The goal of the CFTT Board is to have the position filled by September 1, 2011 and to have its present volunteer CEO spend four months orienting the new CEO to the community and operations of the organization. They wish to have the transition to be as seamless as possible.

The schedule they hope to follow is to advertise the position and collect applications in May, review applications in June and schedule interviews in July so they have a recommended candidate by the Board’s meeting in August. They would like their new CEO to be in the position by the end of August.

Lowell Coolidge, Board Vice-Chair stated, “Our ideal candidate would have had experience managing nonprofit organizations with Boards of Directors, strong experience in fund raising, proven leadership skills, and the ability to implement strategic initiatives. We are also hoping we can find someone familiar with the region.” He continued by stating, “Individuals can learn more about the CFTT from its website and if they are interested in submitting an application and cover letter they can contact the Foundation’s office in Sayre.”

In explaining the CFTT, Marilyn Bok, present CEO stated, “The CFTT is basically a one person shop so the CEO must be versatile and multi-talented. They must be organized, dependable, personable, have somewhat of an entrepreneurial spirit and be totally competent handling financial matters.

The mission of the CFTT is to continuously improve the present and future quality of life in the counties served by the Foundation (Bradford, Potter, Sullivan, and Tioga County PA and Tioga County NY). It establishes endowment funds from contributions of many individual citizens, corporations, other foundations, other charitable organizations and government agencies and uses the income earned from these funds to make grants to the community.

CFTT is a pure public charity, incorporated as a non-profit organization, which has been granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS. Anyone interested in learning more about the CFTT, in contributing to a present fund or in establishing a new fund can call 570-888-4759; fax - 570-882-2179; email - cftt@stny.rr.com or website - www.twintierscf.org .
