The successful candidate will have extensive experience and energy to lead a highly regarded and growing local History Center with widespread community support. The ED will be a visionary leader who will set an engaging and inclusive culture for the next stage of the organization’s growth.

The ED will be an effective spokesperson and partner with important local organizations including the City of Framingham, the Framingham Centre Common Cultural District, Framingham Public Schools, Framingham State University and the Danforth Art Museum.

The FHC runs a robust calendar of monthly programming, rotating in-person and virtual exhibitions, annual education programs, an annual House Tour, fundraisers, research initiatives, and a strong social media presence. The organization is located in three historic, city-owned properties on the city’s Centre Common which hold a collection of 12,000 objects, a research library with archives dating back to the 1600s, exhibition space, and a banquet facility. For more information on the FHC visit: https://www.framinghamhistory.org
