The Lincoln Academy of Illinois has an immediate opening for a salaried part-time Executive Director.
The Lincoln Academy of Illinois is a 501 (c) 3 organization based in Springfield, Illinois that was founded in 1964 to bestow Illinois’ highest honor – The Order of Lincoln at an annual formal convocation ceremony. Since its inception, the Order of Lincoln has been bestowed upon hundreds of individuals who have made tremendous contributions to the fields of business, the arts, sports, agriculture, humanities, and science. The Lincoln Academy partners with donors, trustees, academic trustees, regents, rectors, and the Governor of the State of Illinois as President o the Lincoln Academy, to advance the values exhibited in the life of Abraham Lincoln through programs that encourage leadership by honoring distinguished Illinoisans’ contributions to society; encouraging public service; and investing in developing principled leadership for future generations.
The Executive Director is an officer of the Lincoln Academy and its principal administrator, and works in close partnership with the Chancellor, the Academy's Chief Executive Officer. Although the Chancellor is viewed as ultimately responsible for the supervision and management of the business and affairs of the Academy, it is the Executive Director who manages the day to day operations of the organization and its budget, and implements its Board of Regents approved and General Trustees endorsed programs and strategic initiatives, including all aspects of planning and implementing steps to assure successful Lincoln Laureate convocation weekends and Student Laureate convocation weekends. The Executive Director is the first line of administrative and operational contact with the Academy and its public representative and has the authority to contractually bind the Academy when authorized by the Board of Regents.
