job opportunity: executive director, asian law caucus

The Asian Law Caucus in San Francisco, the nation's oldest organization advocating for the civil and legal rights of APIs, recently announced that the organization's executive director Mina Titi Liu will be stepping down from her position at the end of November. They've been a national search with the goal of having a new Executive Director in place by the beginning of December.

Thus, they're looking for a qualified candidate to step in and lead the amazing justice work the Asian Law Caucus is doing. I've had some decent previous luck posting stuff that's gotten someone a job at ALC, so I figure one of you awesome readers has got what it takes to fill this job too. Here's some more information about the position:
At a time when civil rights are treated more like luxuries than America's promise, the Asian Law Caucus continues to be a leader in protecting the rights of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. As the nation's first legal and civil rights organization serving the low-income Asian Pacific American communities, the Caucus has provided legal services, community education, community organizing, and advocacy assistance to low-income, immigrant individuals and communities since 1972. The Caucus is now positioned, both financially and strategically, to open a powerful, new chapter in its history and is seeking an Executive Director with the passion and vision to lead the organization into its 40th year and beyond.

The Executive Director position presents a unique opportunity for a strong, dynamic individual to advance a vision of progressive social values for AAPIs at a pivotal time of growth and change for both the Caucus and the community. The ideal candidate will have the proven leadership, commitment and skills to lead the Caucus through an expansion of programs and infrastructure, while leading a talented and dedicated staff and management team. The Executive Director will report directly to the Board of Directors, manage all aspects of day-to-day operations, oversee a growing budget of $2 million, supervise a staff of 21, act as the chief spokesperson, and ensure that the Caucus is well-positioned now and in the future with effective programs, sufficient resources and a reputation for integrity
I'm told that while a law degree is preferred, it's not required for the position, and non-lawyers are welcome to apply.
