ANR is seeking a leader for the Sustainable Natural Ecosystems Strategic Initiative. In this role, the individual will provide leadership for the initiative including:
- working with the initiative panel members in revisiting and revising the Sustainable Natural Ecosystems (SNE) Initiative’s strategic plan
- shepherding the ANR Competitive Grants process
- planning and conducting Strategic Initiative Conferences
- identifying and initiating SNE projects such as development of policy briefs, special projects, etc.
All of these efforts are done in concert with the other strategic initiative leaders and with support from ANR units such as Program Planning and Evaluation and the Program Support Unit.
In addition to these efforts, the strategic initiative leader participates as a member of ANR’s Program Council. Program Council advises the ANR Vice President on Divisionwide planning and delivery of programs and develops recommendations for the allocation of Division resources. Program Council is also the forum for discussion and development of recommendations on a wide array of policy and procedures as requested by the Vice President. Important efforts in the coming year are completion of the ANR Competitive Grants review and the prioritization of new CE positions. In both processes, Program Council makes the final recommendations to the Vice President.
The initiative leader is provided a travel budget sufficient for the leader and the panel members and an administrative stipend.
