Colorado Water Trust Is Hiring an Executive Director - Ten years ago Amy Beatie took her dream job as Executive Director of the Colorado Water Trust. Now it’s your turn to work with some of the most talented, thoughtful, and creative water and conservation professionals across the state of Colorado! Amy writes, “I would encourage people to apply even if they meet only some of the qualifications. It's the kind of job that requires the wearing of many hats, yet the lack of experience with all facets shouldn't stop a fast-learner - one who loves rivers, wants to work with an amazing, engaged, and impactful Board, is interested in leading an all-star team of staff members that works hard but likes to goof around and spend time outside, wants to connect donors and funders with impactful conservation, and has the drive to continue to guide the group ever forward - from applying.  Even the most seasoned applicant will need on-the-job training. I've been here for nearly ten years and I learn new things every day.” Please contact Amy at or 720-204-5843 or view the job posting for additional information.
