The Pap Corps has entered its 65th year as a volunteer grassroots fundraising organization consisting of 53 chapters and over 21,000 members in South Florida. Since its founding, it has raised almost $60 million for cancer research with $43 million since 2003. The Pap Corps is pursuing a transformational leader to steer it in new directions as its membership and demographics and the challenges it confronts continue to evolve. Its mission is to enable and support, through the funds it raises, the vital research programs at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, South Florida's only university based comprehensive cancer center. Recently, the organization made a large multi-million dollar pledge over 10 years to Sylvester. The Pap Corps now seeks a CEO to lead in the innovative and dynamic support of its mission.
The CEO will be responsible for developing the strategic plan and the organization's short and long-term goals in conjunction with the Board of Directors. The strategic plan should determine the organization's fundraising and growth potential, and incorporate new and innovative ways of raising funds to increase our fundraising capacity and to meet our financial goals.
Together, the CEO and the Board form the leadership team of the organization. The CEO and the Board have joint responsibility for developing and maintaining a strong working relationship to effectively carry out the Board's governance role.
The CEO's role is to see that the organization's goals and strategic plan serve as the basis for sound financial management. Working with the Controller, the CEO will ensure that solid budgeting and accounting systems are in place and that appropriate financial controls and risk management strategies protect the organization's assets.
In managing the daily operations of the organization, the CEO is required to effectively communicate and direct staff, and is responsible for training and developing employees. A supportive relationship must be sustained between the chapters and office staff.
The CEO will work with the chapters to determine training and development needs, as well as evaluating the cost efficiency of chapter fundraising and providing alternatives to maximize cost effectiveness. The organization is also poised to look outward for new membership venues.
The CEO serves as a primary spokesperson and public face for the organization. The role has three major components: effectively promoting the organization, advocating for the mission and work of the organization, and building relationships with constituent or stakeholder groups critical to the success of the organization.
