The League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) is a nonpartisan political organization that has fought for more than 100 years to improve American systems of government and impact public policies through citizen education, advocacy, and litigation. The enduring vitality and resonance of The League as a trusted force for change and good government comes from its unique decentralized structure: a national organization with strong partnerships at the grassroots level with more than 700 affiliate Leagues across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, and Hong Kong. At the national level, League activities are coordinated and staffed by two distinct but complementary organizations: The League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) and the League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF). The League is currently undergoing a period of transformation and growth as it works to ensure its continued strength and vitality in its second century and beyond.

As the League of Women Voters (The League) continues to grow and build upon its powerful legacy, a search is underway for an experienced and strategic Chief Operating Officer (COO). The League has exclusively retained Impact Search Advisors by Nonprofit HR to assist in these recruitment efforts. Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the COO is a key member of the Executive Team and is responsible for leading day to day and strategic operations, accounting and finance, information technology, and the human resources consultant team. The COO will develop, implement, and communicate effective operational strategies and processes of the organization’s administrative and support services. Critical to the continued progress of The League’s organizational culture, the COO will share accountability with the Executive Team to uphold the organization’s commitment to building and maintaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace, both in policy and in practice. The COO will also be responsible for managing change as the organization grows and evolves.

The COO in collaboration with the Assistant Controller, will successfully manage the financial budget of the organization and maintain accurate reporting on its various funding streams including direct mail, major donors, foundation support, corporate sponsorship, planned giving, and membership contributions. Strong fiscal management and a track record of achieving clean audit outcomes, as well as the ability to streamline financial tools and structures, manage investment portfolios, and maximize the 401k offerings is essential for success in this role.
