growth and development of Hispanic entrepreneurs. The AZHCC, under a federal grant, operates the Arizona Minority Business Enterprise Center, as well as the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

President & CEO Role
The President & CEO must be an experienced leader, advocate, and proven manager, capable of assuming responsibility for the operations of the AZHCC office and the successful execution of the organization's mission. The office has an annual budget
of approximately $1 million and a staff of up to 6 full time employees.
In conjunction with the leaders of the AZHCC's membership and the Board of Directors, the President & CEO will develop and implement an aggressive strategic plan for achieving specific results in Arizona, nationwide and internationally and will engage in public policy activities to foster a positive business environment for the Hispanic business community. The President & CEO of AZHCC represents the Hispanic business community with all levels of government and significant business and advocacy organizations.

Duties & Responsibilities
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President & CEO will be responsible for specific results, including the following:
· Ensure that the AZHCC day-to-day operations are managed efficiently and professionally.
· Develop a member-driven strategy that results in growth and retention of members.
· Develop a corporate culture that places membership needs first and strives for excellent customer service.
· Address financing responsibilities in the short-term and build a strong financial model by strengthening the organization's program development, fundraising
initiatives, membership growth, and increased corporate partnerships.
· Plan and develop media and public relations policies and strategies to promote the AZHCC's image by cultivating and expanding relations with members, funding sources, elected officials, public agencies, business enterprises, and the general public.
· Guide and represent the AZHCC's political/advocacy agenda at local, state and federal levels.
· Personally develop and maintain the relationships between the AZHCC, its small business members, and its corporate partners and supporters.
· Lead a strategic planning process that positions the AZHCC to effectively deal with emerging and changing business trends and needs.
· Create a corporate advisory board that attracts and sustains CEO involvement.
· Anticipate the political, social and economic issues that will affect the Hispanic business community and recommend appropriate action and/or response to
government agencies, the organization's membership and the public.
· Build and direct results-oriented teams of employees, volunteers and planning committees that deliver specific results in all aspects of AZHCC member services.
· Maintain and adhere to the highest standards of personnel management in compliance with established personnel policies and applicable federal, state and regulatory laws.

Education Requirements
Bachelor of Arts is required; MBA or advanced degree is highly desirable. Bilingual (English/Spanish)candidates preferred.

Experience & Qualifications
The successful candidate for
President CEO will:
· Possess proven leadership and management abilities; have experience working successfully with boards of directors; exhibit an unwavering commitment to professionalism and member service.
· Have strong communication skills; speak cogently and persuasively on behalf of the organization; command the respect of his/her audience.
· Have outstanding financial acumen and business/operations experience.
· Have a proven track record in legislative/political advocacy arenas at the local, state and federal levels.
· Have the ability to influence and persuade business owners and key leaders from the business community to sustain their strategic involvement in the AZHCC.
· Be politically savvy and worthy of the respect of executive and legislative communities on both sides of the political aisle.
· Exercise strategic and visionary thinking about emerging trends and apply them to the AZHCC agenda.
· Be a proven fundraiser, particularly with the corporate community.
· Have experience working with Chambers of Commerce and the Hispanic and non-Hispanic business community.
· Be able to attract, develop and retain excellent staff.

Personal Qualities

The successful candidate for President/CEO will:

· Have the ability to wield influence as a leader and spokesperson.
· Possess a passion for the AZHCC mission; serving the organization over
personal ambition.
· Be action-oriented, decisive and goal driven.
· Be mindful of the need for consultative process; be diplomatic; exhibit good listening skills; and be resilient in the face of challenge and adversity.
· Exhibit tolerance toward differences of opinion and personalities.
· Show respect for protocol, process and ethical standards in all aspects of life.

The focus of this job is making connections with people, motivating and inspiring them to achieve results. Possessing poise and an engaging, empathetic and enthusiastic communication style is the key to achieving the goals of this position.

The work involves driving toward results by enrolling the commitment and buy-in of the AZHCC staff, board of directors and others. While the job requires strong initiative and self-direction, results are only achieved with and through people. A sincere appreciation for people and how they are each uniquely motivated is the foundation for designing and implementing interactive communication and decision-making processes.

Also essential is the knowledge and skill in how to successfully influence and persuade others by understanding how their individual needs and motivations link to goals. The job requires a high degree of "selling", whether of ideas and policies within the organization, or products or services in the marketplace.

The job environment is fast paced and results oriented. While achieving measurable goals is imperative, the responsibility for achieving results must be shared and effectively delegated when necessary. Initiating projects and processes beyond established organization practices will often require training and developing others,
and enlisting their support by using a "selling" rather "telling" communication style.

A self-confident, extroverted style that can enliven, engage and positively impact individuals and groups is essential. The job has variety of tasks and is dynamic and changing. Because goals and desired results can quickly change, the job requires regularly meeting and pro-actively establishing relationships with new groups. The ability to quickly understand, react and motivate others to adapt to the
organization's changing environment is critical to success in this position.

In general, the core of this position requires a motivated and motivating team builder and organization developer.

Interested candidates should email a resume and cover letter as attachments to isauro.gonzalez@usbank.com in Word Document format by end of business day on July 9, 2010:
