As reported via email on February 28th, the MRVCC Executive Director, Jasmine Bigelow is moving on at the end of May to pursue her dream.  Read more here.  Over the next couple of months, the Staff and Board are working to ensure a smooth and seamless transition.

The search for the successor ED is actively underway!  The Search Committee is now short listing candidates, and will begin interviews next week.  If you have a strong candidate to recommend, please let us know by March 25th.

Here is what we’re looking for:

The Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce is seeking a dynamic marketing professional to lead the organization in the role of Executive Director. 

This is not your grandfather’s Chamber.  The MRVCC is a forward-thinking, innovative, community-focused destination marketing and business advocacy organization dedicated to creating economic vitality in the Mad River Valley, Vermont. 

The Executive Director is responsible for leading these efforts – working closely with staff, volunteers, a board of directors, affiliate organizations, and over 150 local business owners and managers.

A successful candidate will have experience building and managing brand reputation; developing a smart, integrated marketing plan for maximum exposure within limited resources; and executing all aspects of that plan.  Important is the ability to make social and professional connections with a variety of people; to problem solve; to juggle many different projects at the same time; and to go from high-level strategic thinking to boots-on-the-ground action, often in the same day, and always with a smile and enthusiasm.

This is a really fun, rewarding job for the right person, and an opportunity to be a part of a reimagined and growing organization in a vibrant Vermont community.

Again, if you have a strong candidate to recommend, please let us know by March 25th.
