Institutional Events Manager, National Constitution Center
Posted by National Constitution Center on January 31, 2023
The National Constitution Center is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization devoted to teaching about the Constitution. Located on Philadelphia’s historic Independence Mall, steps from where the Constitution was drafted and signed, it serves as America’s leading platform for constitutional education and debate, fulfilling its congressional charter “to disseminate information about the U.S. Constitution on a nonpartisan basis in order to increase awareness and understanding of the Constitution among the American people.”
The Institutional Events Manager reports to the Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Deputy COO. Core areas of responsibility include collaborating on the NCC’s signature and high-profile stakeholder events, such as the annual Liberty Medal Ceremony and the President’s Council Retreat, a gathering of the NCC’s top donors and Board of Trustees. This position also collaborates on all Board of Trustees meetings and other special initiatives. This role will require partnering with and working through cross functional teams across the organization. Responsibilities include list/invitation management and tracking, development of event/meeting collateral and logistics, and onsite management and troubleshooting, among other tasks. Additionally, this position supports the Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Deputy COO with project management of various strategic initiatives, as well as some day-to-day tasks such as scheduling and other administrative duties. Please note, the National Constitution Center’s institutional events are of institution-wide significance and differ from National Constitution Center facility rental events, which are the responsibility of the internal events team.
The ideal candidate is committed to the NCC’s mission and has a minimum of five years’ experience, preferably in the nonprofit field with specific experience in event management, fundraising, or executive support roles. The Institutional Events Manager possesses very strong verbal and written communication skills, sound judgment, attention to detail, and the ability to work with internal and external constituents including staff, board members, donors, vendors, and community partners. The strongest candidate also possesses a high level of discretion, is able to work independently as well as part of a team, easily adapts to changing circumstances, and is willing to travel and execute tasks outside of business hours.
While in-office work and some travel are required for this position, remote work opportunities are available.
