Fair Hill International Job Opening

It is with great regret that we announce the retirement of our Executive Director, Charlie Colgan.  Charlie is retiring after ten years of distinguished service during which the organization has been stabilized and rejuvenated, with a seemingly ever growing list of events and a Title Sponsor, The Dutta Corporation, that has just signed up for another six years.  Charlie leaves us with the organization in excellent shape and we wish him well in his retirement.

We are, of course, now looking for a new Executive Director!

Are you looking for an inspiring job working with more than 500 volunteers from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and up and down the Eastern Seaboard? 

Are you the kind of person that people consider the "glue" that holds things together?

Are you organized, dependable, detail-oriented, a self-starter, able to raise funds, to attract and develop corporate sponsorships, and also to recruit, retain and motivate volunteers?

Would you enjoy working with a team of hard working volunteers who share a love of the outdoors with a desire to participate in one of the most prestigious Three-Day-Events in the United States?

If you are that type of person but you're not looking for a job position where you sit at a desk all day long, this may be the job for you.

The Fair Hill International Executive Director is one of a full-time staff of two who run a $800,000 enterprise largely through the work of an eager and committed volunteer workforce and through the generosity of our sponsors and friends. 

Our Event Calendar goes from April to October, but the work goes on all year.  Our offices are on the edge of a 5,600 acre State Park in the extreme northeast corner of Maryland, within an hour’s drive of Philadelphia and Baltimore.  Our events are all held in the Park, which provides a superb setting in a natural landscape that is also used by hikers, bikers and naturalists.
