Ever Wonder About Involvement With The Coalition As A Board Member?
Join us Saturday, September 3, 2022, at 9am to chat with new and seasoned board members about all that gets accomplished in the neighborhood through their role on the board of directors. The Coalition is entering a new phase of it's "organizational life" with the hiring of a full-time executive director and a program manager. It's a perfect time to become more active as everyone will be learning together how more can be accomplished with 2 staff members. We promise to be done no later than 10am!

Let's know if you plan to come, but come anyway if your schedule opens up at the last minute!. We will meet at the Catalyst Center, 1809 E 80th 1/2 block east of Paseo. Thanks!

We Are Growing!

We are excited to share that the Coalition is hiring an Executive Director and a Program Manager to increase our ability to create a healthy, vibrant, resilient Marlborough for all who live and work in our community.

The Executive Director will have the day-to-day operational responsibility for executing the Coalition’s mission including staff and volunteer management, financial management, Board of Directors support, fund raising, community engagement, and government and partner relations.

The Program Manager's responsibilities include a focus on activities pertaining to existing and planned housing and green space programs in addition to public safety, food security, infrastructure, and arts and culture.

The Coalition's Board of Directors has identified skills, amounts and types of experiences, and values they believe will allow the selected individuals to successfully assume leadership of many existing programs and activities currently led by board members and volunteers. In addition, it is anticipated that new activities related to Marlborough's green spaces and  its needs to keep existing homes affordable for current residents will be taken on by the new positions.

Detailed information about each of the positions and the process for applying can be found by clicking the links below. Applications will be accepted until each of the positions is filled, so do not delay your response.
