Knox/Crawford United Way seeks executive director

TERRE HAUTE — The United Way of Knox County, Ind., and Crawford County, Ill., is in search of a new executive director. The current executive director, Bob Murawski, will be retiring later this year, and the organization's board is ready to start accepting applications for his replacement.

The executive director serves as the chief operating officer of the United Way of Knox and Crawford counties, coordinating and directing the day-to-day operations of the corporation, as well as developing and implementing new United Way initiatives.

Nicole Hall, president of the Crawford County United Way board, said the executive director position for United Way is key because this person serves as the direct link between the funded agencies, the United Way board and the community.

“The executive director has a finger on the pulse of the community needs and assists the board and agencies in addressing the identified needs in a meaningful way,” Hall said.

Member Helen Seirp said the board is looking to hire a community-focused individual with fundraising experience, social media communication experience, a high level of organizational skills and the ability to meet the public.

“This individual will be the face of the United Way,” Seirp said. “This position is a great opportunity for a self-motivated, community-minded individual to develop teamwork among the social service agency programs serving Knox and Crawford counties.”

The executive director is a full-time position, with the annual campaign kicking off in late August and wrapping up before Thanksgiving, providing financial support for local social service programs. Some travel is necessary to serve the two counties.
