Civitas Networks for Health raises the voices of local health collaboratives putting in the hard work to change the way health care operates. From the secure exchange of life-saving data to the accountability of multi-stakeholder health improvement initiatives, our member organizations have built the most trusted, connected, and inventive programs to serve their communities, regions, and states. By supporting these nonprofit collaboratives and sharing their successes with other programs and at the national level, Civitas is helping speed progress toward higher quality, better connected health care in the U.S.
Civitas is a small, high-performing, fully remote team of public health and health care association management professionals who are working to build our new organization both to serve our 170+ member organizations across the country and to deliver on our mission. Our members represent regional health improvement collaboratives, regional and statewide health information exchanges, all-payer claims databases, health data organizations, and affiliated organizations. Our federal and national grant-funded programs focus on multi-site data-driven approaches to advance health and health equity. Though the team is small, the national network reaches 95% of the United States. The ideal person to serve in this role is looking for an opportunity to grow within a dynamic nonprofit organization with an important mission and is interested in developing subject-matter expertise in Civitas’ areas of focus.
The Senior Director or Vice President of Finance and Operations is a new role on Civitas Networks for Health’s leadership team and will report to the CEO. Civitas is in a critical stage of growth following its founding in 2021 and successful first two years of operations. The new Finance and Operations leader will play a key role in strengthening the financial and operational infrastructure needed for the organization’s long-term sustainability and success.
In partnership with the CEO, Board, and team, the new Finance and Operations leader will further develop, implement, and maintain our financial management strategy including systems, policies and procedures, planning and reporting, and managing third party finance, accounting, audit, and tax partners. In addition, they will be responsible for leading a small team and overseeing operations including human resources, via our Professional Employer Organization, Justworks, and our managed IT services and technology vendors. As a member of the leadership team, they will be expected to be a liaison to the Board, a strong collaborator, and a skillful people and culture leader. They will manage a small team, including an Associate Director, and will need to demonstrate a commitment to professional development with the ability to support and grow the career of this important team leader as well as additional staff across the organization. This is an excellent opportunity for a nonprofit finance leader with experience maintaining financial compliance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and a track record of creative problem solving and change management to join a member- and mission-driven organization looking to increase its impact.
