SVP, Educational Resources, White House Historical Association


For more than 200 years, the White House has been more than just the home of the Presidents and their families. Throughout the world, it is recognized as the symbol of the executive power and of the United States. The White House Historical Association (WHHA) is charged with enhancing the understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the White House.

On January 1, 2010, the White House Historical Association established the David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History at Decatur House, a research and educational institute. Currently, the center provides ongoing educational programs for students, teachers, scholars, and the general public on the history of the White House and the President's Neighborhood. The center's future plans include a digital library, which will offer unparalleled opportunities for online research and distance learning; lecture programs for public audiences and scholarly symposia for academic audiences; tours for the general public on a scheduled basis; and open houses and family days on focused themes.

To help support this exciting future, the WHHA is seeking an outstanding Senior Vice President of Educational Resources and Director of the David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History to work in partnership with the President to develop and implement world-class programs and projects that inform, educate, and inspire the public. The new Senior Vice President will lead a staff of experienced professionals and will work collaboratively across departments to identify and capitalize on new opportunities to deliver exceptional and innovative educational programming, as well as research and historical resources.   The Senior Vice President will have the opportunity to build an important educational resource for the country and s/he will serve as a dynamic leader and spokesperson on the local and national levels.

The Senior Vice President will have a minimum of 10 years of experience leading multifaceted history-related programs at an institution with national reach and reputation. This individual will be a self-starter with an entrepreneurial spirit, and with the ability to set a strategic direction with supporting implementation strategies while working in collaboration with the Association’s President. S/he must have a strong background as an executive leader with experience motivating staff, working collaboratively across an organization, and maintaining strong relationships internally and externally. The successful candidate will have a PhD in history or a related field, and will be a strategic thinker who has developed, implemented, and overseen large-scale programming efforts.
