The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) Board of Directors have announced that Executive Director Kate Fish will retire later this year, after nearly 12 years leading the organization. The regional economic development nonprofit has launched a nation-wide search to fill the position.
Founded in 1955, ANCA works to build prosperity across northern New York through three core program areas: Clean Energy, Food Systems and the Entrepreneurial Economy. In 2019, ANCA took on operation of the Adirondack Diversity Initiative when state funding enabled the hiring of its inaugural director.
ANCA’s board has appointed a small search committee to manage the search process, including Dr. Ty Stone, ANCA board member and North Country REDC Co-chair.
A complete job description can be found on the ANCA website. ANCA is accepting applications until Friday, May 7th, 2021.
ANCA is an independent, nonprofit corporation with a transformational approach to building prosperity across northern New York. ANCA’s community-informed, results-driven strategies for local food producers, small business owners, would-be entrepreneurs and municipal innovators offer targeted interventions that are designed to keep wealth and value in local communities.
