Supervision Controls
The Executive Director may receive instructions from the BOC or other governing or regulatory agency. The Executive Director routinely works without the direction of a supervisor and must exhibit independent initiative to develop methods, deadlines, priorities, and/or objectives. The Executive Director regularly makes independent decisions pertaining to situations not covered by specific guidelines, but the BOC or other employees are to be consulted in serious or unusual circumstances. Ultimately, the BOC will review the Executive Director’s work for Agency’s progress and achievement of goals.
Under normal conditions, the Executive Director makes general assignments to department Directors, specifying priorities, deadlines, and objectives. The Executive Director infrequently makes specific assignments to executive office staff. Assignments to executive office staff will include what is to be done, deadlines, quality, quantity, and priority. The Executive Director supervises professional, managerial, and clerical employees and monitors the work of multiple work units that perform related and/or unrelated work.


Guidelines
Guidelines followed by the Executive Director include published laws, regulations, handbooks, notices, contracts, agreements, codes, ordinances, BOC policy directives, and HUD technical assistance. Upon individual initiative, the Executive Director obtains informal guidance and assistance from other agencies, professional organizations, and housing-related groups.
The Executive Director performs duties by applying the basic principles of housing authority management and uses independent judgment in many decision-making situations. Routine decisions pertaining to the operation of the Agency, handling of funds and personnel matters, are to be addressed through specific guidelines in the form of internal operating policies and procedures, and federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
The Executive Director is periodically monitored or evaluated for compliance with existing guidelines by the BOC and HUD.


Complexity
The Executive Director simultaneously performs a wide variety of tasks, which are not always clearly related. The Executive Director must:

  1. Make decisions regarding unusual circumstances, conflicting data, and non-routine situations pertaining to the overall management and operation of the Agency.
  2. Handle some tasks that are difficult, such as dealing with life-threatening emergencies (e.g. inoperative gas or electric systems and crimes committed against residents).
  3. Respond to residents, staff members, the BOC, City officials, news media, Congress, and the public on a continuing basis necessitates great patience, tact, and diplomacy.
  4. Respond to ever-changing laws and regulations which require frequent updating and promulgation of Agency plans, policies, and procedures, particularly those affecting applicants and residents, such as the admission of aliens, federal selection preferences, and rent computations.

Scope and Effect
The Executive Director’s leadership affects the Agency’s image in the community, staff throughout the Agency, and the Agency’s residents. Effective leadership in managing, operating, and maintaining housing programs has a positive impact on the Agency’s overall mission: to provide its residents housing that is decent, safe and sanitary and programs and services that meet their needs. Successful accomplishment of that mission can result in betterment of housing in surrounding communities and provides a positive image in the community.


Personal Contacts
The Executive Director has contact with a broad range of individuals including: the news media; BOC; federal, state, and local government personnel; social service personnel; housing residents; the general public; various special interest groups; and all levels of Agency personnel. Most contacts with people outside the Agency are relatively unstructured and require tact and diplomacy on a routine basis. Regularly, contact requires negotiation and/or handling of controversial matters.
Contact with the public serves multiple purposes including: giving or gaining information, planning, coordinating, advising, motivating, influencing, directing persons or groups, justifying, defending, negotiating, and resolving significant matters. Contact may occur in cooperative, antagonistic, or unresponsive situations.


Physical Requirements
Work is principally sedentary, but may involve some physical exertion during on-site visits with residents or staff members, inspections of Agency developments, sites, dwellings, or facilities, and travel to meetings, conferences, or workshops in other cities. The Executive Director:

  1. Must be able to sit and/or stand for up to eight hours at a time while preforming work duties.
  2. Must be able to bend, stoop, push, and pull in the performance of work-related duties (e.g. moving or carrying objects or materials).

  4. Must have vision and hearing corrected to be able to perform essential job functions.
  5. Must be able to perform essential job functions in an environment that will sometimes include increased levels of work-related stress.
  6. Must maintain a professional appearance and portray a positive image for the Agency.
  7. Must be able to maintain punctuality and attendance as scheduled.
  8. May request a reasonable accommodation to mitigate any of the physical requirements listed above.

Work Environment

From time to time, it may involve visits to housing developments, sites, dwellings, or facilities which can present particular challenges.


Other Requirements
