Executive Director for Northeast Texas
Trail Coalition Position Opening
The application deadline is February 28, 2017
About the Position
The Executive Director is a new position for the Northeast Texas Trail Coalition (NETT Coalition), a four
year old organization. This person will work with the Board of Directors, volunteers, and partners to
provide the leadership necessary to fulfill the mission of the NETT Coalition and move the organization
and the NETT forward in its promotion and full development. This involves leading a diverse group of
urban and rural volunteers and local political leaders dedicated to advancing the NETT, a 130 mile rail-
banked trail in Northeast Texas that flows through seven counties and 19 communities. It connects
the eastern edge of the Dallas Metroplex at Farmersville to New Boston, Tx. near Texarkana.
The strong preference of the Northeast Texas Trail Coalition Board would be to have the Executive
Director located in Paris, Texas, the largest and most central city on the NETT. However, for the right
candidate, we would consider having the position located elsewhere.
