MALT is Hiring! Search Begins for New Executive Director

by Glenn Marx, MALT Executive Director

     It’s officially official: The MALT board of directors has finalized the MALT executive director job description, and an active search for MALT’s next executive director is now underway. I’ll be retiring within a March 2022 timeframe and someone new, with new ideas and new energy, will serve the land trust community as MALT executive director.

     I’ve had the honor, and the good fortune, to have this job since 2006, after I’d interviewed with a MALT hiring committee consisting of (at the time) Bill Long, MLR; Andy Baur, PPLT; Wendy Ninteman, FVLT; and Paul Sihler, HOTR. I was hired under an informal two-year agreement that was never formalized. As long as MALT kept paying me I kept showing up for work, and here we are, 15 years later. I’ll be riding off into the sunset and MALT will have a terrific opportunity to work with a new executive director on a new vision, and new creative ways to serve the MALT membership with new and perhaps more youthful enthusiasm.

The position is now listed on MALT’s website.
