Founded in 1985, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Historical Society's (GLBTHS) mission is to collect, document and preserve LGBT artifacts from the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California, and to share historical information with the public in ways that demonstrate its relevance to society at large. The GLBT Historical Society Archives is one of a handful in the country and is open to researchers, documentarians and scholars. The GLBT History Museum, in San Francisco’s historic Castro area, showcases exhibits of LGBT historical importance. Its programs and exhibits are open to the public.
The Executive Director (ED) provides the vision, strategic direction, and overall management for the GLBT Historical Society. The Executive Director is responsible for fundraising, development, supervision of staff, relationship building for the organization and overseeing program development and implementation. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the ED will ensure that the organization is fiscally and administratively sound and that its development efforts, programs, operations, communications, and information systems are effective and move the organization towards its goals. This position will start at half time and is expected to become full time in 6-12 months as the ED increases development.
