Were young, small, underfunded, and growing rapidly. We arent exactly financially secure - however we are growing in Membership and planto add staff this summer. Were on a mission to sustainability. Right now while weregrowing I would not consider us secure. Were in a chicken/egg situation where wecant effectively support our growing Membership without more staff but have a verylimited budget. Best financial condition ever and just added staff. About same mumber of members, however, the revenues are growing as we reach outto larger companies. We are growing-- but not as strong as hoped. We need a development director to helpus focus on growth and renewals. Our membership and visibility has increased greatly, but traditional funding hasslipped markedly. (please make sure to delete choice b/2) Growing but not financially secure Membership is flat, but all other measures are up well: participation, media, influence,etc.

This is still a work in progress. My hope is to see it through to real sustainability and impact. Tough to balance... One day it seems theres unlimited opportunity and on the next it seemswere spinning our wheels. Its tough to make enough headway to take a breath and getperspective. I feel privileged to be in the role that I am but I never feel like I have the presence ofmind to make the most of the opportunity as Im stuck in grind of keeping the wheels in motion.Note: We are just beginning in the area of policy. The ranking above is initial understanding - totalnew area of engagement for me. Enjoy helping our industry grow and given a lot of flexibility to lead. Love coming to work everyday. most challenging and potentially, the most rewarding Im a connector by nature. Love helping create a better future by helping our members get wherethey are going faster... Great opportunity to connect and make a difference as long as you stay focused. Awesome jobthat combines focused industry support and direction with other key stakeholders. My job reflects the best and worst aspects of my skills, thinking and other capabilities. Wereworking on more targeted board involvement to fill gaps and make the most of my strengths. I wish I could clone myself and add an hour or 2 to the day, then maybe I could keep up. Overwhelming at times, but generally creative and enjoyable. Internal respect and supportthrough our parent company has done a 180 degree turn
