The Board of Trustees of the Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA) is
seeking an Executive Director.

NRRA, a national leader in the field of recycling since it was formed in 1981
by a group of municipal officials provides educational, technical, and
marketing assistance to New Hampshire communities in the area of waste
reduction, reuse, and recycling.

NRRA stays on the cutting edge of an emerging technology by developing and
implementing progressive, innovative programs. These "first in motion" programs
have received the highest compliment by being copied by others throughout the
United States. Although fourteen years old, the NRRA Cooperative Marketing
Program continues to be the model to which all new programs look.

Some of the exciting new projects the Association is presently involved with

- Computer Cooperative Marketing Program;
- Two tier (i.e., spot market or guaranteed floor) cooperative marketing
options; and
- Private for-profit feeder corporation.

Director to identify members' needs and appropriately maintain and initiate new
programs to fill those needs is essential. In addition, experience in municipal
government, the solid waste industry, and the marketing of recyclables, as well
as a proficiency in public speaking, are a plus. A Bachelor's Degree in public
