BERKELEY, Calif.–The Northern California High School Cycling League is looking for a new executive director to replace the founder and outgoing executive director, Matt Fritzinger, who is moving on to build the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).
Having founded and built the NorCal League, Fritzinger is now finding all his time taken up by work at the national level. “I’ve been trying to manage the two, but we knew this wouldn’t work, and it isn’t working. The interest for building League’s is ramping up faster than expected. Just in the last few days we’ve been having conversations with folks in Oregon, Wisconsin and Georgia and they don’t want to wait.”
The NorCal League is in transition from being the guiding light of other leagues to becoming a chapter league of NICA.
The executive director’s job has a broad scope that includes fund and sponsor development, risk management leadership, program planning and implementation, human resources management, operations planning and management, financial management, community relations and advocacy, and also board relations.
Candidates with experience in non-profit leadership, success in fundraising, and a passion for mountain biking are being sought. A job description can be downloaded from the homepage at www.norcalmtb.org and applications with a cover letter and resume should go to [email protected] No phone calls please.
