Launching the Search for BNID's Next Executive Director

Jon Shaffer

Dear BNID friends,

It has been a tremendous honor (and a lot of fun!) for me to have served as the Executive Director of the Boston Network for International Development for the past two years. During this time we incorporated as a formal 501c3 organization, grew our board of directors, expanded our content and community-led events, and added more than 2,000 members to our roster. It's been a good run!

Alas, as a PhD student in sociology at Boston University, the time has come for me to take on my fieldwork and research obligations. So, it is with some sadness that I am announcing that I'll be stepping down as BNID's Executive Director and will be passing the torch to our next fearless leader.

Who will this be, you ask? Perhaps if could be you!

We are now officially opening up the search for our next Executive Director. 

Take a look at the job description, consider applying, and please forward it to friends, colleagues, and anyone you think could be a good fit. As always, feel free to email me if you have any specific questions.

It has been a real joy to meet so many of you over the past two years and to grow this organization alongside you. I'm excited for what's to come for this organization and am hopeful about the future of our collective efforts to advance social justice.
