The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is the world’s leading non-profit organization for all those interested in the future of cities. It explores how increased urban density and vertical growth can support more sustainable and healthy cities, especially in the face of mass urbanization and the increasing effects of climate change worldwide.
The Director of Programming and Events works collaboratively with CTBUH members and staff to develop meaningful in-person events and online programs on best practices in tall building and sustainable urban development. The director works collaboratively across the organization, aligning program goals with members’ needs, and ensuring that event and online programming meets strategic and financial goals. In particular, the annual international conference is key to this role. The Director owns the planning, development, budgeting, and execution of CTBUH’s programming strategy and works with the C-suite to develop that strategy. As a member of the senior management team, the Director fosters a positive working environment and demonstrates a high degree of accountability and integrity.
Throughout 2020 and 2021, CTBUH educational programming was limited to online conferences and in-person events where regional conditions allowed for such type of events. However, 2022 has allowed CTBUH to resume increasing activity in most regions. This November in Chicago we will hold our first international conference since 2019, with an anticipated audience of 800+. We are looking for an innovative thinker who can align with CTBUH’s new vision and translate it into meaningful, engaging events and online offerings.
CTBUH is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, with offices in Italy and China. This position is located in Chicago. CTBUH has returned to working in the office, with Wednesdays and Fridays as work-from-home days.
