The Power of the Dream (POD) is searching for a new President for its Board of Directors. This is a volunteer position requiring strong leadership skills, some fundraising capabilities, and the drive to serve as a champion for the organization and the rights of adults with autism and intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD).

POD is a ten year old, Raleigh-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing local employment opportunities for adults with autism and/or IDD. POD currently owns one business that employs 22 adults, and is seeking involvement in a second in order to hire more individuals with autism/IDD and to serve as an example to other employers in the region. The organization also runs a self-employment program that teaches adults with autism/IDD how to create and execute a micro-business plan.

As chief volunteer, the President works with other board members, staff, and volunteer committees to further POD’s mission. The President influences how the board uses its time, the selection of board members, and its future leadership. Anyone interested in taking on this role should understand the scope of energy and time required to be effective.

Individuals with strong leadership experience with the local business community are highly encouraged to apply to take the organization to its next level of success. This is an excellent opportunity to assume a key role for a worthy cause. An Executive Director is also on staff to support this dynamic leader.

Interested candidates may submit their resumes to Nichole Brownlee at nichole@thepowerofthedream.org.
