What does a league director do?
The League Director is responsible for overseeing league operations, promoting and maintaining NICA’s mission, core values and culture in the local Nebraska league. The League Director is a collaborative and inspirational leader who works closely with the local leadership advisors to establish a program that will grow participation and create financial sustainability. The League Director is a NICA employee, reporting to the President of NICA and accountable for all operations provided to the local Nebraska community.
What is the typical time commitment?
Of course, time and effort vary by week and by season. This is not a typical “job”. Busy weeks will entail 20+ hours, working with volunteers, often outside the 9-5. Five race weekends in the fall are a highlight of league operations. Presenting, public speaking, leading meetings, recruiting, soliciting donations, and frequent communications with coaches & staff are key responsibilities. Ideal candidates can prioritize, focus, and orchestrate multiple work streams with a flexible schedule and efficient communication.
What is the compensation?
A modest starting salary is available, however working at the Nebraska league will require a strong passion for the mission and people involved. Compensation can increase as the league grows and increases its revenues. Additional funding opportunities may be available in the near term to compensate the right candidate.
What types of backgrounds do League Directors bring to the role? Where do they come from?
Anywhere and all over. League Directors are educators, business leaders, military, philanthropists, sales people, and more. They are all passionate, proven leaders who build and mobilize a community.
Who will I report to? Who do I get to work with?
League Directors serve as employees of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA), and work with national leaders and experts to translate national know-how into local capability. League Directors also work with a Nebraska advisory board of leaders and advocates to build connections and unlock local opportunities.
