Call for Applications for WBU CEO Position

At the WBU General Assembly held last year in Orlando, our CEO, Dr. Penny Hartin, announced that she plans to retire from her position prior to the next General Assembly. In order to ensure that a new CEO would have sufficient time to learn about the World Blind Union, our operations and work, prior to the next Assembly, we are currently recruiting a new CEO. WBU Officers have selected a recruitment committee which is chaired by WBU President, Dr. Fredric K. Schroeder. We are of course particularly interested to receive applications from blind and partially sighted persons. Application deadline is 1 August 2017.

Details of the position responsibilities and requirements are outlined in the following linked document:​ CEO Advertisement - World Blind Union-eng.docxCEO Job Advertisement - WBU
