The mission of the New Economy Coalition (NEC) is to convene and support all those who might contribute to an economy that is restorative to people, place, and planet, and that operates according to principles of democracy, justice and appropriate scale. Faced with interconnected ecological and economic crises, we believe that shared prosperity, sustainability and an equitable society require deep, systemic changes to both our economy and our politics. We support a just transition to a new economy that enables both thriving communities and ecological health.

Dear NEC members and supporters:
NEC has just launched a search for the New Economy Coalition’s next Executive Director. Over the last few months, the NEC staff and board have been working with Third Sector New England to assess our organizational strengths and weaknesses, identify our leadership needs, and plan the transition. 
Below is the job abstract, which includes an overview of the position in addition to a summary of our organizational assessment. In short, we are looking for leadership that will build, inspire, and manage a talented staff team and a vibrant coalition; keep the board strong and engaged; be a primary public face of the organization; further develop strong and innovative fundraising capacity; and build collaborative relationships with the donor community and other stakeholders.  
We are asking for the help of NEC's supporters, with your immense movement knowledge and networks, to help us spread the word. The complete position and contact information for interested candidates may be found at also encourage you to reach out directly with questions or suggestions of potential candidates or sources to our lead transition consultant Jeremy Phillips at
Thank you in advance for your help. This is such an exciting moment for our network.  We appreciate your patience and support as NEC transitions to its next phase of leadership. 
Best regards,
Aaron Tanka and Leah Hunt Hendrix

Since NEC’s founding, we’ve aspired to catalyze a just transition to a new economy—one that prioritizes people, place, and planet; one that operates according to principles of democracy and appropriate scale; and one that is just and equitable.

This June, hundreds of 650 movement leaders, activists, practitioners, and newcomers came together in Boston for NEC’s largest and most significant convening yet.
