CLINCH RIVER VALLEY INITIATIVE TO
HIRE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
ST. PAUL, VA (Monday, March 7, 2022) – The Clinch River Valley Initiative (CRVI) is seeking applicants for the newly established Executive Director position. As CRVI looks forward to its second decade of service, it can lay claim to many signature accomplishments. The Hometowns of the Clinch program, additional access to the Clinch River, new branding and signage, expanded environmental education programs, and the creation of the new Clinch River State Park are but a few of CRVI’s many successes.
Conceived as the result of a 2010 forum on Building Local Economies in Southwest Virginia, CRVI has seen significant growth and development over the course of the past eleven years. The Five Action Groups – focusing on water quality, the development of access points on the Clinch River, environmental education, downtown revitalization, and the creation of a state park – have undertaken a wide range of well-coordinated activities designed to realize the CRVI’s stated vision of the Clinch River Valley as “a global destination based on the region’s unique biodiversity, natural beauty, cultural attractions, and outdoor opportunities.”
“We are proud to bring the first-time full-time position to the Clinch River Valley Initiative,” said Lou Ann Wallace, President of the Clinch River Valley Initiative Board. “The addition of the Executive Director will facilitate the continued growth of the work of the organization in service to the community. We look forward to welcoming abord a candidate who will be uniquely suited to showcase the Clinch River as a global destination and support our relationships with our partners who have supported the work of CRVI over the last 11 years.”
The Executive Director is the key management leader of the Clinch River Valley Initiative. The Executive Director is responsible for overseeing the administration of the nonprofit organization, along with programming, regional partner development, and executing the organization’s strategic plan. Other essential duties include fundraising, marketing, and community outreach. The position reports directly to the CRVI Board of Directors.
