Sigma Tau Delta, International English Honor Society, with its Central Offices associated since 1968 with Northern Illinois University’s (NIU) English Department (DeKalb, IL), is a not-for-profit 501©3 organization with 900+ ΣΤΔ chapters in the U.S. and abroad. It is one of the largest collegiate honor societies in the country. Its outreach program for secondary schools, the National English Honor Society (NEHS) has an additional 1,000 chapters, and is the only national English honor society exclusively for high school students and teachers.

The Executive Director (ED) provides visionary leadership for, and oversight of, the Society’s extensive operations in the areas of internal and external communications, public relations, long range strategic planning, alumni relations, chapter development, and marketing. Furthermore, the ED is responsible for the development and management of the Society’s annual budget, which can exceed a million dollars annually.

The ED reports directly to the Society’s Board of Directors (a volunteer board of 13 members) and serves as the organization’s chief executive officer, providing primary leadership, vision, and managerial oversight for all aspects not delegated otherwise to the Board. The Director is the final authority for primary administrative and operational matters, and is the senior leader for the Society’s overall programs, resource management, and operations.

The ED must work and exercise leadership with a wide range of constituencies, including university and secondary school administrators and faculty, commercial partners, vendors, a diverse faculty Board, alumni, and student leaders. The ED must possess advanced knowledge, abilities, and professionalism to work credibly, as a peer, with these individuals. This position does not involve teaching.
