Since education of the broader community is a key component of the AMI programs, a competitive applicant should also have an interest and capabilities in community development, networking, and communications.   The AMI Executive Director must be available to work occasional evenings and weekends and should be willing to travel to rural work sites as needed to provide leadership and supervision for Farm Managers and other employees at those sites.
