CELA is Looking for an Executive Director

Expression of Interest – Candidates

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

CENTRE FOR EQUITABLE LIBRARY ACCESS (CELA/CAEB)

Since October 2019, under the direction of our Executive Director Rina Hadziev, CELA has made significant strides to improve the user experience of the CELA website, develop new partnerships and continue expanding the collection of accessible materials and services CELA offers. As a board we have been very pleased with the progress thus far and look forward to the remainder of her term. We are grateful to the Greater Victoria Public Library for allowing Rina to devote this year to CELA, and it is with mixed emotions that we prepare for her return to her position there in the fall. Rina will be available to serve as a resource for the incoming Executive Director.

In order to ensure a smooth transition for our patrons, partners and staff, a sub-committee of the Board of Directors of the Centre for Equitable Library Access has been tasked with determining the market interest in the soon to be vacated position of Executive Director.

Interested individuals and/or organizations are encouraged to submit an expression as outlined below.

The Board is open to a secondment or non-traditional arrangement. The staff are decentralized and thus there is no requirement to be based in the Greater Toronto area. A successful candidate could be hosted by a public library; and will likely develop some local administrative and accounting support structure.

The job descriptions and operating requirements are below. Please submit or ask questions of the sub-committee through [email protected]
