About the Position

The Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC) is expanding from having a half-time Executive Director to having two half-time positions: Executive Director and Technical Director, and now has entered into a search for an Executive Director. This is a halftime (50% FTE), telework, contractual, position to begin April 2019.

Background

The CMAHC is a non-profit organization with a mission of “Healthy and Safe Aquatic Experiences for Everyone”. The CMAHC was established to manage updates to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) and promote voluntary adoption. The MAHC is kept sustainable, current, and complete because the people who use it develop, discuss, and vote on proposed changes through membership in the CMAHC. The CMAHC submits these proposed changes to CDC as advice on how the MAHC needs to change to keep up with the latest science and best practices. Throughout the year, CMAHC staff educate local and state authorities, aquatic facility owners, operators, designers, manufacturers, builders, and retailers about the MAHC and its potential to help ensure a healthy and safe swimming experience for everyone.
