Gateway CDC works within the communities of Brentwood, North Brentwood and Mount Rainier, MD and in collaboration with multiple partners to ensure the success of the entire Gateway Arts District.
Over this calendar year Gateway Community Development Corporation (GCDC) will be assessing our needs for employing an executive to manage the organization and support our mission. We are currently looking for a consultant to help conduct that assessment as part of developing a business plan.
More immediately, we need operational management and support in the Gateway CDC office on a temporary basis. We are looking for a professional with a proven track record in non-profit management, skills in assessment and analysis, and business acumen. This individual is expected to keep operations running efficiently while developing the Business Plan.
