Conference Center Director -- Lake Logan, Canton, NC (Diocese of Western North Carolina)

Lake Logan is a 300-acre retreat in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains and is just 40 minutes west of Asheville in Haywood County. It is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes on the East coast. It is the centerpiece of an ecologically bountiful environment punctuated only by the scenic byway that runs through it and whose occasional traffic reminds us how peaceful this remote valley really is. Lake Logan is owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina, but it is managed and operated by Lake Logan Episcopal Center, Inc. (“LLEC”), a nonprofit corporation.  At this time, Lake Logan serves two purposes.  It is the home of Camp Henry during the summer months, which is a camp for youth offering a unique and special spiritual program focused on experiencing and appreciating God’s creation, and it is a Conference Center that provides spiritual education and enrichment when Camp Henry is not in session.

The Conference Center Director will be responsible for the Conference Center as the current Camp Henry Director will have responsibility for Camp Henry.  The Conference Center Director will report to the LLEC Board of Directors.  This is a position that requires the ability to develop, lead, supervise, recruit and train both program and operations staff.  The new director will be selected based on experience and a positive record of results.  A history of successful work within the Episcopal Church is desirable, but not essential.
