NEABPD serves the Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) community at large through building awareness and providing the most current information and research on the disorder. NEABPD serves professionals, persons in recovery, and families impacted by BPD.
NEABPD’s main program is Family Connections™, a training program for families with a loved one dealing with BPD. The organization provides numerous other resources, for families and professionals, through its website. Notably, the U.S. Hudson Bay Foundation recently awarded NEABPD a large grant to create an online version of Family Connections™.
Since its founding in 2001, NEABPD’s efforts have led to BPD Awareness Month (BPD is one of NAMI’s priority populations), three book publications, establishment of NEABPD in several other countries, conferences, a call-in series, and more.
All this has been accomplished by volunteers across the United States.
NEABPD is embarking on a growth plan to expand the domestic and international awareness and focus on Borderline Personality Disorder issues in our communities. To accomplish this goal, it is transitioning from an all-volunteer organization to one that includes professional staff. The Executive Director is responsible for providing overall administrative and management leadership. Reporting to the Board, s/he has the responsibility for the management of day to day operations, programs, and fundraising efforts.
This position offers the right person an opportunity to bring a new level of sophistication to the organization and increase NEABPD’s adaptive, leadership, management, and operational capacities. The Executive Director will also be a resource for the Board of Directors as the organization builds out its infrastructure.
This position will work remotely from home and will include some travel to conferences and to community stakeholders and donors. Preferred candidate would reside in the greater New York area, but not exclusively for the right candidate.
As the Executive Director for the organization, there are many relationships to cultivate and nurture: The Founder, the Board of Directors, part-time Family Connections™ staff, and other volunteers.
To successfully navigate these relationships, the chosen candidate will instill confidence with diverse stakeholders, honor the past while looking ahead, value each individual and the different ways they connect with and contribute to the success of NEABPD.
