The North End Business Association is looking for a new Executive Director.

NEBA is looking for a leader to help us grow and prosper.

Over the past year with positive and unrelenting hard work Bernard Smith has positioned the North End Business Association as the go-to organization for businesses, residents and future developers.

As a new organization we have kept the North End in the media, created awareness at HRM, taken on issues of concern for our members, and promoted the North as the obvious choice for developers, families, and small businesses.

Bernie’s sense of adventure has him soon headed in new directions and NEBA is looking to make a smooth and stable transition to a new leader. This new leader’s mission will be to lead NEBA into its next phase of prosperity in response to the needs of its members.  He/she will work under the governance of the NEBA board of directors, liaise with city officials and members, represent the needs and causes of North End Business, and manage the organization’s finances and human resources.

Candidates should possess extremely good communication skills, experience in fundraising and grant writing, a proven track record for volunteer and staff management and a love and broad understanding of the dynamic needs of the North End business community.
