They will serve as the chief advisor, strategist and thought partner to the Co-Executive Directors, across AAFE for all programs and services. They will be an instrumental part of the leadership team in partnership with the two Co-Executive Directors. The Chief of Staff will also work proactively with all of Senior Program Officers and their program teams, to promote AAFE’s programs and advocacy positions to policymakers and AAFE’s key stakeholders.
