The Leadership Alliances Coordinator works as part of the team to develop, plan, promote, and execute these key programs and events as well as serving as the support person for the department. The Coordinator also works cross departmentally by assisting in the building of relationships with “grasstops” leaders such as artists, patrons, civic leaders, and philanthropists. The Coordinator should possess strong project management skills as well as have experience in event planning, donor relations and prospect research. The Coordinator should be an organized self-starter with a keen alertness to detail, and the ability to work on multiple large-scale programs simultaneously. The Leadership Alliances Coordinator reports to the Director of Leadership Alliances and also works closely with the Vice President of Leadership Alliances.
