Japanese Garden Society or Oregon Seeking Executive Director


Contact: john@waldronhr.com
Last Updated: 6/21/2005

The purpose of the Japanese Garden Society of Oregon is to create, maintain, improve and administer an authentic, world-class Japanese garden in the city of Portland; and, to offer compatible educational, cultural, artistic, horticultural and charitable activities.

The Japanese Garden is tucked into Portlandís West Hills, situated at about five hundred feet above sea level. It is a haven of tranquil beauty that has been proclaimed one of the most authentic Japanese gardens outside of Japan.

At just forty years old, the garden represents a Japanese traditional garden. When compared to its inspirational precursors in Japan, many of which are hundreds of years old, the Portland garden has matured with blinding swiftness. Hundreds of dedicated persons, most of whom are volunteers, have given years of time, care and foresight to match the vision that a group of Portland civic and political leaders had in the late 1950s.

The Executive Director reports to the Board and has overall responsibility for staff supervision, planning, financial management, fundraising, marketing, and community relations of this nonprofit agency and its paid staff members and volunteers. He/She will work closely with the Board to develop and implement the strategic plan, establish policies, and provide leadership and support for the staff.
