Executive Officer Position Description


We are currently recruiting for the position of Planning and Program Manager.  

Join an innovative new organization created in 2020 to address the threat of catastrophic wildfire in Marin County, California.  The visionary voters of Marin County passed Measure C, “The Marin Wildfire Prevention and Mitigation Initiative.”  As we’ve seen in the last several years, fires know no boundaries, and the voters in Marin County have recognized the time is now to prepare and plan for addressing this massive risk.  A groundbreaking endeavor and the first of its kind in the State of California, the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA) was born out of Measure C and is now positioned as the central coordinating agency charged with addressing the risk of wildfire in Marin County. Under this voter approved initiative, MWPA will enable the 17 local fire agencies serving Marin County to work together as a single Joint Powers Authority (JPA) to develop and implement a comprehensive wildfire prevention and emergency preparedness and response plan for Marin County.
