Who We Are
We believe that the future of nonprofit facilities management can be transformed with the power of group procurement and strategic sourcing. The Community Purchasing Alliance (CPA) has already changed the way that 160 schools and churches think about their utilities, service contracts and vendor relationships, and we’re hiring a hungry and experienced Regional Director to level us up.
This is the kind of leadership opportunity that only comes along once every few years.
What We Do
CPA is the only buying cooperative serving schools, churches, and other nonprofits that makes a quantitative promise about its performance, which means that you’ll pitch something that actually works. We bring tailored insights about contracting and facilities management to underserved nonprofits and guarantee savings, so what you offer will delight people and make them and their organizations more successful.
What It’s Like to Work at CPA
You’ll start from a great foundation. Just 3 years into the Community Purchasing Alliance, we have strong enterprise relationships with KIPP DC, Friendship Schools, Episcopal Diocese of Washington, the Center for Community Change and many more. We are building something that people haven’t experienced before, and it’s allowing them to direct millions of dollars back towards their core mission.
CPA Co-op helps organizations lower the cost of their largest contracts while being more effective with the performance they get from their vendors. Whenever an operations or finance director is reviewing proposals, you and your team will bring them something provably useful and exciting.
We’re flexible… basically, CPA is an outstanding place to work.
What We’re Looking For
As our Regional Director, you’ll lead our engagement with DC area members from top to bottom. This includes leading the team of program specialists, channel partners, and consultants who work with our members every day, as well as refining the system within which they work.
You are as comfortable selling directly to nonprofit executives as you are prioritizing leads with program specialists and reporting progress against key sales metrics. In this role, you will operate at all altitudes.
We’d Love to Hear From You If:
- You have previous experience in leadership, sales, organizing, or program development
- You are an excellent communicator verbally and in writing
- You like to win and you play both tough and fair to get there
- You are a results-minded leader who knows how to capitalize on the diverse strengths of people around you to succeed–CPA Co-op stands for resourcefulness, and you do too
- People love working with and for you
- You have a track record of trying and learning new things
- If you have prior experience with school operations, facilities management, and/or cooperatives, don’t forget to mention it!
