Long-time OVEC Executive Director Janet Keating will retire this fall. Our board of directors has formed an ED Search Committee and they are now taking applications.

The Ohio Valley Environment Coalition (OVEC) seeks a dynamic Executive Director to coordinate initiatives with the goal of improving and preserving the environment and communities through education, organizing, coalition building, leadership development, strategic litigation and media outreach.

The ideal candidate will have strong ties to Appalachia and a passion for environmental justice.
