Job Description: 
The Municipal Art Society of New York (“MAS�) is a non-profit membership organization that aggressively champions excellence in urban design and planning and the preservation of the best of New York's past. They believe that the physical city – its light, air, land and open spaces – and its sensible development are critical to New York's continued economic health and social well being. MAS has long been the leader of advocacy efforts to preserve the best of New York City's past– from saving Grand Central Station to forcing the city and a developer to scale back a proposal for a massive tower at the southwest corner of Central Park – from establishing the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance to organizing the Tribute in Light to honor those who were lost on September 11, MAS has been a major factor in New York City life. The Society’s longtime President, Kent Barwick, is stepping down and the Board of Directors is seeking a seasoned executive to provide leadership and continue to take the organization forward. This person will be a dynamic, self-starting leader with strong management, organizational, fundraising, communication, and consensus-building skills. He or she will work closely with the Board on key strategic and business decisions and advance the organization’s mission in an effective manner. The President will be externally focused and responsible for building on the already substantial reputation of the organization as an effective advocate for important urban planning issues across the city. He or she must also have the ability to raise funds from a variety of public and private sources and must be mindful of how an organization like MAS functions in the community, particularly in the areas of urban planning, land use, architectural preservation, and public art. A large part of achieving the mission of MAS is engaging the public in the issues and in MAS’s approach to solving them. The President will play a major role in advocating solutions and developing them, in consultation with leading experts, to the point where they can be implemented. The successful candidate will be a highly effective leader who understands the landscape of New York City and issues around urban design and planning in the government, nonprofit and private sectors. Responsibilities: • Managing a large professional staff; creating and fostering a team-oriented environment of cooperation and integration; promoting an open, inclusive environment that emphasizes cooperation and teamwork with a minimum of ego. • Managing an annual operating budget of approximately $4 million; leading the staff and Board in developing realistic annual budgets and making financial decisions consistent with the budgets as approved by the Board. • Ensuring compliance, at all levels, with the organization’s policies and procedures as well as federal, state, and local laws. • Working closely with the Board and senior staff on appropriate issues, policies, and strategies and to ensure that each advocacy issue or project MAS takes on has an operational, media and fundraising strategy. • Leveraging and developing Board skills and capabilities, and helping to identify key areas for Board development. • Skillfully representing the organization and communicating successfully and persuasively to diverse audiences including the Board, potential partners, the press, , government officials, corporate leaders, influential academics, current and potential funders, and the general public. • The President will be passionate about the mission and will work both independently and as part of the team to ensure that MAS is a trusted and effective advocate for urban planning in NYC.

Job Requirements: 
• An advanced degree is preferred as is at least ten years of increasingly responsible experience in an applicable setting; hands-on experience working with complex advocacy issues, coalitions, and running campaigns is important. • A background in design, urban planning, and/or architectural preservation is a plus. • Must be politically astute and comfortable dealing at all levels of government. • Excellent written and oral communication skills, a hands-on management style and the ability to address and solve problems as they arise. • Capacity to manage and expand the organization’s effectiveness and raise the funds necessary to ensure success; sufficient authority, credibility and charm to raise money and some experience in soliciting and cultivating donors. • Exceptional leadership and strategic thinking skills; must be able to facilitate constructive dialogue among constituencies and competing demands. • Must be bright, diplomatic, of the highest integrity, and possess sound judgment and interpersonal skills as well as a sense of humor.

The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is pleased to announce three upcoming teaching opportunities. We're seeking Teaching Artists and Designers to develop and teach multi-session workshops investigating community issues in New York City with high school students. Our educational projects build on the everyday experiences of young people in the city to ask questions about democracy, civic participation, and social justice. We use art, design, and technology to make connections between everyday life and the decisions that give it form. Drawing upon the disciplines of urban planning, architecture, art, and sociology, students engage in community-based research and multimedia design projects. CUP Teaching Artists and Designers work with CUP staff to develop course ideas, schedules, lesson plans, and to document the projects.

They will work with CUP staff to generate interview subjects and site visits, and will lead students in the research and documentation process.
