Cincinnati, OH

Leadership Council for Nonprofits maximizes the impact of nonprofit organizations, develops their leaders and strengthens the community. Leadership Council plays an integral role in supporting local nonprofit agencies to build capacity, connect, collaborate with and learn from each other in order to meet the needs of the community. Leadership Council has experienced significant growth in recent years to include nonprofits from all sectors - arts, education, health, community development, human services, environment and more.  

Under the longtime leadership of our Executive Director Jenny Neyer Berg, we have grown from a small human services association of 85 agency members, providing a few services to help reduce members’ overhead, to a strong, large nonprofit network with over 260 members. Programs have expanded to include important nonprofit capacity development efforts such as board development and placement (BOLD), Leaders Circles, the Securing the Future conference, mentoring for ED/CEOs and the Leadership Challenge. We also offer important member benefits such as compensation and benefits surveys, a job board and no-cost retirement programs.

The success of Jenny’s focus on growth and improvement can be seen in two ways: the growth of Leadership Council for Nonprofits and the personal growth of its member organizations and their leaders. Jenny will be stepping down from her role in May 2022 after ten years at the helm of the organization.

Leadership Council for Nonprofits now seeks a new leader who can build on the organization’s transformative momentum to reach new heights. The next Executive Director will be:

  • Responsible for overseeing and carrying out the Leadership Council for Nonprofits mission and strategic plan, advancing a vision for the future, and ensuring that the strategic plan is in focus and understood by stakeholders
  • Intricately involved in all functional areas of the organization, including but not limited to fundraising, communications, program oversight, board governance, financial management and viability, organizational operations and human resources.

What’s in it for you?

  • Make an impact on the lives of nonprofit leaders and the sector while driving systemic change
  • Lead an engaged and talented staff and collaborate with a passionate and energized Board
  • Take a well-regarded, financially stable organization to its next level of growth and impact
  • Base salary of $84K -$96K depending on experience
  • Flexible schedule in a hybrid work environment (home or office), healthy culture and variety
  • Health insurance, generous Paid Time Off, 9 paid holidays, 403b retirement plan match
