Community Center Director IIIs are responsible for the organization and implementation of programs at the recreation center. The essential functions are: supervises employees and volunteers; oversees and assists staff in the administration of recreation and/or athletic programs; manages the community center's financial resources; and contributes to the department objectives. Employees in this class typically supervise Recreation Leader IIs and Is, Recreation Aides, and volunteers. The Community Center Director III is distinguished from the Community Center II in that the Director III conducts selected activities at a larger facility and supervises a larger staff (including coaches) with programs/activities designed for organized athletics programs as well as open gym activities. The Director II is distinguished from the Director III in that the Director II is more involved in leading non-athletic programs and is generally assigned to a smaller facility with a smaller staff.
